When 10 Dougherty Family College (DFC) scholars got news they had earned a full-tuition scholarship to pursue a bachelor’s degree at St. Thomas, the prevailing response was: “This is a dream come true.”
It is no secret that the University of St. Thomas shows pride in the accomplishments of its students who remain committed and dedicated to the challenging work, faith and community that has welcomed and embraced them on campus. Supporting the success of the students enrolled at Dougherty Family College (DFC) is no exception.
Several businesses offer paid internships to DFC students as part of the school's Professional Internship Program. U.S. Bank was an original supporter and sponsors the most students, 14, of any business.
A year ago, 10 Dougherty Family College students received the first-ever Excellence Scholarships to fully fund their tuition to continue toward four-year degrees at St. Thomas. This year, they’ll be joined by 19 more peers from DFC.
