Help available for DSACF scholarship applications
Every year, the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation makes $800,000 in scholarships available.
This week, Amber Burns, the foundation’s community impact specialist, is holding help sessions to make sure everyone pursuing a college degree can access the money.
Her first session was Monday morning at Duluth East High School.
“I know that the application process can be really stressful for students because they’re applying for college and FAFSA, so I’m just here today to help them with anything they need on their scholarship applications,” Burns said.
She’s holding a second session from 5:30-7 p.m. Tuesday at the West Duluth Library.
There are 80 different scholarships that students can apply for by starting with one application.
“A lot of times we have scholarships that nobody applies for or maybe one or two students apply for them,” Burns said. “So I really encourage students to apply for everything and anything because every little bit helps, and a lot of times, other students aren’t applying. So you have a really big chance of getting that scholarship.”
The deadline is Feb. 15.
