Helping Dayton-area Students Get to College

The Dayton-Montgomery County Scholarship Program (DMCSP) was founded in 1981 to serve the needs of achieving students who required financial assistance in order to attend the college of their choice. DMCSP has expanded from its initial service to students in the Dayton City Schools to include 23 participating school districts in Montgomery County. In all, 29 high schools currently participate in the Program, and Montgomery County students who have received their GED during the current academic year also are eligible.
