The Douglas County Education Foundation awards $40,482 in college scholarships to Douglas County students.

 

The Douglas County School System (DCSS) announces the awarding of $40,482 in college scholarships by the Douglas County Education Foundation (DCEF). Scholarship winners include students from all five DCSS high schools, as well as the College and Career Institute (CCI).

 

In addition to providing university scholarships, the DCEF also awards a scholarship known as the All American Technician Academy (AATA) Scholarship to a student interested in jumpstarting a career in a technical trade. This $2,482 value tuition waiver scholarship is for a week-long course at AATA in Douglasville and includes all training materials and books.

 

This year, a total of 29 scholarships were awarded to DCSS students, with students from every Douglas County high school represented. 

 

The Douglas County Education Foundation is honored to have the Mary Peace Winn, Frank M. Winn, and Judge Dan P. Winn Memorial Scholarship as a continued donor.  The scholarship awards $1000 annually up to 4-years for five scholarship awardees.  “Education was important to my father.  I want other people in the community to follow my father’s lead,” says Mr. Frank Winn.  

 

Criteria for consideration for DCEF scholarships include major, high school,  volunteerism, financial need, enrollment in College & Career Institute or Performance Learning Center, participation in sports, and other holistic factors. Most scholarships require a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0, but some scholarships have no minimum GPA requirement.

 

The DCEF, has a mission to benefit student success through the generation and dispensing of funds in order to “encourage, recognize and reward excellence in the students and staff of the Douglas County School System.”  For more information about DCEF, as well as their annual scholarship program, visit http://dcef.dcssga.org/
