The Durham Public Schools Scholarship Foundation's (DPSSF) mission is to provide scholarship support to seniors from High Schools in the Durham Public School System and showcase the outstanding character and enormous talent of Durham Public Schools students and we want you to help!

We believe higher education should be attainable for students who have the aptitude/determination and desire for this type of self improvement. DPSSF, along with its partners and sponsors, will alleviate some of the financial burden associated with attaining this higher education and enable students from middle income families the opportunity to pursue their goals and dreams.

Our goal is to award a minimum of $20,000 in scholarships annually. These scholarships are open to graduating Durham Public Schools seniors who expect to enroll in a post-secondary institution the next fall and meet the eligibility criteria.
