Polly Cox Memorial Scholarship

Dulin Cooperative Preschool understands that the expense of high-quality preschool can be a strain on a family’s budget. Helping eligible families reduce their cost through scholarship is an important part of our program.

The Polly Cox Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 1984 in memory of Polly Cox. Polly was a valued friend and member of Dulin, and served on the Executive Board from 1983 until her death on December 6, 1984. The purpose of this tuition scholarship is to provide funds for families who would otherwise be unable to attend Dulin or to help current families continue their enrollment at Dulin during times of financial hardship.


Dulin Cooperative Preschool awards tuition and/or hardship scholarships. Scholarships will be awarded based upon need and may provide up to 80% of total tuition cost. We ask that even families on scholarship contribute towards their child’s tuition at Dulin – this enables us to help as many families as possible. Scholarship funds cannot currently be used for application fees, enrollment deposits, Enrichment, or Lunch Bunch. Families are responsible for providing the remaining tuition and fees on the first of each month. All other participatory obligations to the preschool remain in place, regardless of financial assistance.

Applicants will be notified by the Scholarship Committee about decisions as to the distribution of available scholarship funds. If your application is submitted before February 15th, we will make every effort to render a decision by the time admissions decisions are made. Scholarship applications submitted after February 15th will be considered on a rolling basis, based on available funds. Scholarship applications for returning students must be resubmitted annually along with the application for admissions. All information contained within the Scholarship Application, as well as the decision of the Committee, will be strictly confidential.
