Renew Your DSF Scholarship
The DSF Scholarship Application for the 2021-22 academic year is now open in the DSF Student Portal. The deadline to complete your renewal application is Thursday, April 1, 2021, at 11:59 pm.
DSF has a new student portal! Find it at the same URL, portal.denverscholarship.org. All students need to create a new account, even if you had an account in the old portal. You’ll need your DPS lunch number OR current college ID (if on file with DSF) and a valid email address to get started.
- Check out all of the new features, including a quick and easy way to contact DSF from the portal, all DSF forms ready to complete online (no need to print or save anything), and a new Awards tab with your current and past DSF scholarship awards.
Once you submit your application, you may update your 2021-22 college choice until July 15, 2021. Go to portal.denverscholarship.org to update your college choice.
The college selected on your College Choice Form as of July 15 is the college where you will be considered for a scholarship award for the entire 2021-22 academic year. If you will not be attending the college DSF has on file, you will not be eligible for the DSF Scholarship for the upcoming academic year.
DSF strives to process scholarship payments as soon as possible once we receive financial aid, enrollment, and Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) information from your college at the beginning of each term. Click here for details about the DSF payment process and timing.

DSF offers need-based scholarships to qualifying graduates of Denver Public Schools. The scholarship can be used at DSF’s Partner Colleges in Colorado, including technical, community, and four-year colleges and universities. Students must enroll full-time. The scholarship is renewable for up to four years depending on the type of college you attend.
