The DSDI Scholarship Committee is evaluating the applications submitted by the Feb. 14 deadline for the 2014-2015 academic year scholarships. Our early reviews show a wonderful and diverse group of applicants from 23 states. The applicants provided their academic transcripts, an essay, a resume, and two letters of recommendation via an internet-based scholarship application system, STARS Online. The process went well this year and the number of applications increased by 20%. Scholarship recipients will be announced at the July 4th meeting in Philadelphia.
A quick reminder: If your son, daughter, grandchild, or cousin is in their junior year of high school, now is the time to make sure they are a member of the DSDI. In order to apply for the 2015-2016 academic year scholarship you must be a member in good standing by Fall 2014.
