New for the 2019-20 academic year, DCD’s Hawk Scholarship has been created for highly motivated middle school students who embody the values of DCD’s mission. This very selective, merit-based opportunity recognizes students who demonstrate outstanding academic, athletic, or artistic promise and a desire to make a meaningful contribution to their community at DCD.
DCD’s Hawk Scholarship is an award of up to $12,000, which results in a straight reduction of tuition for one academic year. Hawk Scholarships will be renewed annually, contingent upon the student maintaining good academic standing and demonstrating a positive contribution to the school, which will be determined at the sole discretion of DCD.
The Hawk Scholarship is open to all applicants, regardless of financial need. This merit-based grant is awarded to candidates based on the strength of their application and eligibility.  If a family is eligible for partial financial aid and has a student who has applied for and received the Hawk Scholarship, they may combine this merit based grant with any need-based assistance granted to reduce tuition even further.

If you are interested in applying for the Hawk Scholarship, you must complete the middle school application for admission.
