DSACT is pleased to offer a monthly stipend to assist our members in paying for Arc of the Arts classes.  Stipend recipients will have one class per month paid for by DSACT.  Class is directly billed by the Arc to DSACT.  

To apply for this stipend you must already be enrolled in the program. Members will apply at the beginning of each year in order to be considered for a stipend for that year. A limited number of stipends are available.
