The District of Columbia Housing Authority has a total of $40,000 in scholarships the agency awards each year to students furthering their education in the fall.
The annual Commitment to Excellence Scholarship Program accepts 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.
