The Denver Scholarship Foundation Future Center at Northfield High School is located in the Room 123 of Building 2.

Denver Scholarship Foundation (DSF) is a nonprofit helping to make college possible and building the educational and economic future of Denver by collaborating with Denver Public Schools (DPS) high school students, families, and partners statewide to increase access and completion of post-high school learning, while also expanding generational exposure to career and entrepreneurial opportunities.

DSF accomplishes this through its nationally recognized evidence-based three part program consisting of support systems, actionable tools, and scholarships to help guide students to lifelong success.

  1. College Access: Our full-time College Advisors work proactively with DPS 9th – 12th graders at our DSF Future Centers located inside of DPS high schools
  2. Scholarships: We award need-based scholarships to DPS graduates attending a community college, university, or technical college in Colorado
  3. Success: We partner directly with colleges in Colorado to provide DSF Scholars with additional financial aid and ongoing support to help them succeed through college, career, and beyond.

Since Fall of 2007, DSF has awarded $57.6 million in scholarships to 8,941 DPS graduates.
