Scholarships

Durham Arts Council awards scholarships on the basis of financial need. Scholarships are awarded through a formal application process, and DAC offers scholarships to children and teens for up to 75% of the cost of the camp. The awards are granted based upon the financial need of the child/teen’s family. A scholarship application should be completed and attached to the camp registration form. Call Janet Bell, School Assistant Manager/Registrar, at (919) 560-2726 for more detailed information about scholarships and the application process. Scholarships for DAC School and camps are generously provided by a memorial grant in memory of Susan F. Beischer from the Fox Family Foundation, with additional support provided by Triangle Community Foundation’s Send A Kid To Camp™ Program, Timmins Summer Scholarship Endowment, Sheetz, and individual donors. Support from these generous donors increases the opportunities for more children to participate in DAC School Programs.
