The Danville Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce a scholarship program for local students. The 2016 funding comes from dollars donated from the membership body of the DACC. The DACC will continue this program on an annual basis.

Our deadline to receive all completed applications is 5:00 pm, Friday, April 8.  The recipients will be notified the week of April 27. We hope these dates work with your school schedule and with your graduation programs.

The second page is the actual application.  To be eligible, students must live in Danville, Alamo, Blackhawk or Diablo or have a parent who works for a business which is a member of the Danville Area Chamber.  They need to complete the application form, write two essays (about their community involvement, future goals and possible financial need) and send those along with copies of transcripts of grades for the past two years.
