Signed Document

A Promise To Keep
We have added a student promise to our application, "I promise to stay in school, be the best student I can be, and when I am successful, to return to DPS to help others." We want to encourage all students to be the best they can be and pay it forward!

Man Shouting
Calling all 6th Graders!
We are now accepting applications from middle school students beginning in grade 6. We are working on updating our online application for middle schools, but you can use our paper application, by clicking here. Please complete this form even if you are not sure whether you will be using our scholarship or not - it only takes a few minutes.


Important FASFA Information

If your income changes, you should change the FAFSA, and send us the new financial aid letter. If the EFC (expected family contribution) seems high, have the financial aid office at your college or university review it.

 Everyone wants to be a PRINCESS... now you CAN BE!
