The DSA Friends Student Success Fund was established in the fall of 2014 to ensure that all DSA students experience success and are not limited by financial resources. This fund provides supplemental assistance with DSA-related expenses such as lessons, art supplies, performance attire, tutoring, and more. Families applying for grants must submit a Statement of Need (to be uploaded in the application process), and either qualify for current aid programs (FARL, SNAP/EBT, etc) or indicate current financial hardship. 

The Student Success Fund is not intended for DSA/DPS related fees or travel of any kind. 

Applications will be reviewed by DSA Friends and the Student Success Committee on a quarterly basis.

Funds are awarded on a first-come/first-serve basis. There is a possibility that all possible funding could be awarded in the first round, dependent on the number of applicants and total requests. 

Round one/First quarter deadline: August 31, 2021
Round two/Second quarter deadline: October 22, 2021
Round three/Third quarter deadline: January 31, 2022
