The Destination Imagination Support Committee (DISC) supports the goals of Destination Imagination, Inc. through scholarships and community-building activities.

Each year, DISC awards scholarships to graduating high school students and those currently in post-secondary educational programs. Applicants must have participated in Destination Imagination, Inc. programs as team members or volunteers. There are three Challenge tracks for all scholars: Essay, Presentation and Internet. Applications are scored based on the creativity of solutions to special DISC Challenges as well as past and continued involvement with the organization. Fundraisers for the scholarships are held both at Global Finals and throughout the year, and they include the sale of pins and T-shirts.
