Our Celebration of Achievements event is just around the corner, Thursday, August 18, 5:00pm. Reminder for Event Sponsors, Donors, and All DC Area Folks
DC International Charter School Give Away Day
Thanks to everyone who pitched in! What a Fun day, Friday, July 22 at DCI.
Most 2022 award recipients were able to come by and collect their laptops and the first Supplemental Scholarship award to get started with textbook and transportation expenses, and tuition gaps. Our fundraising campaign continues out of necessity, to build available funds going forward for the 33 students we’re committed to supporting on their journey to keep their debt load down.
Franklin's & Skylar's Tuition Gap Conundrum
When I spoke with Franklin and Skylar on Friday they told me they'd be applying their awards toward tuition. Their tuition gaps are larger than expected. If you haven’t pitched in yet, but been meaning to, now is a great time to do so to allow us to cover more of their tuition gaps.
“ A lot of people think if you give a kid a scholarship, now the kid’s set…they’ve got everything they need. Nothing could be further from the truth.”
Chris Metzler, director of student services at Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology
