The mission of the Jane Austin scholarship is to provide financial assistance to individuals enrolled for Mandarin Chinese language programs at the Discovery Center for Asian American Culture (DCAAC). The Jane Austin Scholarship is principally directed toward summer camps and after school programs for an individual who loves and values learning Mandarin Chinese. Tuition waivers normally are awarded for two semesters per academic year.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE is based on financial need, academic performance, leadership potential, and participation in DCAAC programs including, but not limited to, volunteer hours. Scholarships are awarded annually provided funds are available.


The Jane Austin scholarship awards are reviewed by the committee based on students’ financial need. The award winners will automatically receive a fee waiver for a program they have chosen. The Jane Austin Scholarships are awarded regardless of race, color, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation. Scholarships awarded are based upon the availability of funds and additional qualifying criteria.
