Doran Community Scholars
The Doran Community Scholars Program (DCSP) is the result of the generous donation given to the ASU Foundation from Wayne and Maureen Doran.
The DCSP was formed in 1997 to assist first-generation college students from the Phoenix Union High School District with a 4-year scholarship to pursue higher education and to provide them with continual support throughout their journey at ASU.
The program features monthly activities and events to enhance personal and professional development.
Washington, D.C. is the culmination trip for the Doran Community Scholars. Every year, members of the senior cohort are responsible for fundraising $1,000 each to attend the trip.
We would like to ask for your help in funding our goal! Please consider supporting our scholars with a donation by clicking the maroon "Give Now" button.
The fundraised money will be used to pay for flight costs, hotel charges, and some meals.
The program pays for other activities, including a private monument night tour with Dr. Yohannes Zeleke; lunch in the senate dining room with a senator; a tour of the Capitol; visiting the Smithsonian Museums, Holocaust Museum, Arlington National Cemetery, and the International Spy Museum; touring the White House, Georgetown, Old Town Alexandria, and Ford’s theater; among other activities.
Our goal in D.C is to explore and experience the government of our nation’s capital. Due to the diverse backgrounds of our scholars, we do not normally have the opportunity to travel across the country to study and learn about our nation's history firsthand.
With the help of supporters like you, we can accomplish our goal of making it to D.C. to celebrate our accomplishments at ASU!
Thank you for your time and consideration!
