While we are pleased to be able to fund these 15 programs/projects, however we received 32 applications. We regret that we did not have sufficient monies to fulfill all of the quality proposals. Nonetheless, we continue to make a difference in the education of DPS students. Thanks for your support in helping to make this so.
