IGNITE DAVE is A College Promise Program that invests in residents of Davie County. IGNITE DAVIE puts Education at the center of our community and will ultimately spark the economic vitality of Davie County! It is a place-based last dollar scholarship; which means students must live in, and attend high school in, Davie County. Beginning with the Class of 2020, IGNITE DAVIE will pay tuition and fees with a stipend for books for students to attend DCCC fulltime.  Students can pursue a Certificate, Associate’s, or College Transfer Program without incurring student debt.
