Scholarship applications are available in January of each year. NCW graduating seniors are asked to complete the application and return to our DFS Chapter by March 15th. The scholarships are judged in April, by a judging committee made up of previous Chapter members and officers.

Award letters are given at Commencement, in May, to each recipient, and disbursement of funds is made the following December, when the recipient has completed one semester at a post-secondary college or university.

All scholarships have the same criteria, and all scholarships have the same application and deadline dates.
