The District of Columbia Housing Authority has a minimum of $40,000 in scholarships the agency awards each year to students furthering their education in the fall. Applications are due this Friday.

The annual Commitment to Excellence Scholarship Program is now accepting applications from students who live at DCHA properties or are Housing Choice Voucher Program recipients. There is no age requirement; however applicants must be attending an accredited college, university, or trade/technical school in the fall and must have a 2.0 GPA or a 225 GED score.

Continuing education is something DCHA always encourages and the agency wants to support its customers who are working toward that goal. These scholarships, which are paid directly to your learning institution, can pay for books, tuition, equipment, or other items needed to assist our clients’ in their studies. 

Applications are available online here or can be found in DCHA’s Office of Resident Services, HCVP offices, housing managers’ offices, and resident council offices. Applications must be submitted in full by June 28, 2019. If portions of the application are missing, it will not be considered.
