The Greater Denfeld Foundation’s purpose is to support students of Duluth Denfeld High School by providing awards and scholarships to assist with expenses directly related to post-secondary education. In addition, grants are awarded to staff to provide valuable resources to enhance students’ high school educational experiences.


Each year, the Greater Denfeld Foundation’s Scholarship Committee selects about 50 students for recognition. The majority are awarded four-year renewable scholarships, so at any given time there are about 200 scholars studying with the support of the GDF.
