Since 1974, the Daytona State College Foundation has provided financial assistance to students as well as funding for faculty and program support. It helps to fill the critical needs that are beyond the scope of the College's budget.
Each year the Foundation awards hundreds of scholarships to Daytona State College students. Scholarships may be awarded based on need, academic merit or other criteria. In addition to scholarships, the Foundation assists students with emergency grants, emergency loans, book and equipment purchase assistance, and funds to cover professional examination fees.
The Foundation embraces the concept of the college mission as adopted by the District Board of Trustees. Management of Foundation affairs is vested with a self-perpetuating Board of Directors from the community that the College serves.
Daytona State College Foundation scholarships are usually announced at the beginning of the fall, spring, and summer semesters. When available, the scholarship list and online application process can be obtained at www.daytonastate.edu/scholarships or at the Financial Aid Services Office located on the Daytona Beach Campus in Bldg. 100, Rm. 104. Additionally, information regarding Foundation Scholarships is available in the Question & Answer Centers located on all Daytona State campuses.
