International Education

“My week in Ireland was the best week of my life”, says Shodeah Kelly, a recent DCCC graduate. This suitcase-with-stickerssentiment is often echoed by students who have the opportunity to travel abroad with the DCCC International Education Department. For many students, travel abroad is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity; a chance to experience first-hand the things they’ve learned in the classroom. Our students walk in the footsteps of history, discover the sights, smells, sounds and tastes of the world, and immerse themselves in cultures different from their own. International travel builds confidence, instills compassion and creates appreciation.

Scholarships have made these experiences possible for our students, and we need your help to keep our students travelling, learning and excelling. Please consider helping DCCC continue to bring these opportunities to students with a gift to the DCCC International Travel Scholarship Fund. Your contribution will allow more students like Shodeah to experience the world beyond her doorstep.

Ever more we are living in a world that is in demand of globally minded, modern leaders. The students who have the prospect of international travel as a part of their experience at DCCC have the chance to open their minds and hearts to the world. Shodeah notes that, “Without a scholarship, I would have never been able to experience the once-in-a-lifetime chance to learn about the world outside of the United States. Words cannot truly express how grateful I am for the financial assistance I received. Thank you for making my dream come true!”
