Dominica America Scholarship & Culture, Inc. (DASCI) is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization mostly comprised of Dominicans living in Florida. The organization has been awarding scholarships to Primary School graduates in Dominica since 2007 and, to date, has awarded 67 scholarships with a total value of US$34,700. This year, because of generous donations from fellow Dominican Mr. Hendricks Ismael and his wife Lottie Walton, each scholarship will increase from US$500 to US$750 and will be named in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Ismael. Scholarships are open to students in need of financial assistance who meet the requirements set out in the application.
“Even in the difficult fundraising environment resulting from the COVID19 Pandemic, DASCI members are motivated and committed to continue helping students in need” said Melinda Thomas, President of DASCI.
Every year, the organization invites students from a select number of Primary Schools to apply. Different schools from different school zones are chosen each year so that, over time, all schools will have an opportunity for their students to participate in the Scholarship Program.
