DCIS Foundation

The Foundation’s Mission Statement: The DCIS Foundation seeks to take global education beyond the classroom by realizing financial resources to provide travel and cultural exchange opportunities for the students of Denver Center for International Studies.

Established in 1997, DCIS Foundation raises money to support the work of all three DCIS schools. The foundation seeks to provide exceptional and excellent global education to DCIS students by giving scholarships that allow students to participate in meaningful travel and experiential learning opportunities – such as language-immersion programs that help students become multilingual, volunteer-service projects in the United States and around the world, summer camps and travels associated with academic research.

Students may apply for the foundation’s scholarships twice a year and will be advised of application processes and deadlines during the school year.
