Enrichment activity opportunities
We make learning more meaningful, valuable and rewarding. Dart scholars get lots of enrichment opportunities every year – the highlight of which is, without question, the high school summer trip.
Every year the trip is planned to build on Scholars’ STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathmatics) interests and takes them to world-renowned educational institutions and organisations – with a little bit of culture and sightseeing thrown in for fun.
My scholarship has helped me tremendously. Of course, funding for school is a financial benefit in itself, but the most important aspect of the scholarship is that I am given an opportunity to intern with professionals in my desired career path. This will help me explore my interests and narrow my focus to an area of study I am truly passionate about. Dart has acted as my career advisor, in a sense.
