Decorah School District students can now apply for scholarships that will enable them to take enrichment classes this summer.
ExCel Endowment Fund grant applications are now available online at the Decorah Community School District's website at www.decorah.k12.ia.us for students in grades 6-11. Those wishing an application should click "Scholarships" in the menu bar to download the form.
ExCel is an arm of the Decorah Community School District Foundation. It awards financial assistance to students who are pursuing summer enrichment opportunities. Depending on funding availability, priority is given to students attending programs in academic and technical fields, followed by those in fine arts. Students currently in grades 6 through 11 and enrolled in the Decorah schools are eligible. This includes students who are home-schooled but supervised by the DCS as well as students enrolled in St. Benedict School.
Students meeting the above qualifications are invited to view the program criteria and application online. Completed applications must be returned to the Central Administrative Office on or before 4:00 p.m. Friday, April 29th. Awards will be announced the week of May 2nd. Notification will be sent by mail to all students who apply for ExCel funding.
Questions may be directed to Peggy Beatty, ExCel committee chairperson, at 382-2574 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
