Inspiring Stories

This scholarship has allowed me to know how to code and how to program which has become a huge interest of mine.

Lesoni, student

This world is becoming a technology world and to be able to have that opportunity provided to my son as a scholarship was just wonderful.

Lucia, parent

This scholarship allowed me to explore a potential new career choice.

Timothy, student

This scholarship means to me that my son has the opportunity to explore tech in a new way they have never seen before.

Kevin, parent

I would definitely recommend other students apply to the scholarship because it really gives you the opportunity to have access to equipment and technology you wouldn’t have anywhere else.

Gaby, student

My husband is a teacher and I’m a part-time journalist and we never really had the resources to take it to the next level in terms of the software the hardware or a camp like this. It was really meaningful for us to get to this scholarship and she is already talking about what she’s going to do with films she's created in the camp.

Elizabeth, parent

DMA is an amazing program and a lot of kids can’t afford it. I would recommend they apply for the scholarship because it is basically the best camp I’ve ever gone to.

Julie, student
