Special Announcement re 2020-21 Scholarship Applications

To all applicants submitting scholarship applications, your letters of recommendation can be mailed directly to the DREF office or sent via email (dpcoleman@deltafoundation.net) versus being included in your overall application packet.  Letters of recommendation must be on letterhead and include an original signature (electronic signature not acceptable).  Transcripts may also be sent directly to DREF or sent via email; transcript must have original seal.  All items (application, essay responses, letters of recommendation, and transcripts) must be RECEIVED by April 23, 2020. More details and mailing address can be found in scholarship guidelines on this website. This adjustment in not requiring all items to be mailed in one package is being made in light of the current pandemic crisis which requires stay-at-home restrictions throughout the nation.  Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
