Scholarships

Welcome to the DHS Scholarship page! Here you will find links to scholarships that are sent to us and then we post them. In addition, you can also find links to Fastweb and Student Scholarships which are sort of like search engines for scholarships.

One thing to note as you search for scholarships: any scholarship that asks you to first pay them money, is probably a scam. If you have questions, come talk to a school counselor.

If you are looking for information about the Local Scholarship Program and/or DASFI (Dodgeville Area Scholarship Foundation Inc.) head over to their pages, under the Scholarship page.

Make sure to check out the scholarship and/or financial aid section of the website of the university or technical college you plan to attend - most (if not all) offer scholarships!

Finally, check back OFTEN for updates!
