What is Dollars for Scholars?
Dollars for Scholars® is a national network of community-based and volunteer-operated scholarship foundations throughout the US. As part of Scholarship America's® national network of locally based, volunteer driven Dollars for Scholars chapters, our mission is to mobilize our community on behalf of postsecondary educational success for all students. The Minneota Chapter was formed in 2001 and since that time, we've raised and awarded M.H.S. graduates with more than $60,000 to help support their continuing education goals. In addition, with the support of our community through named scholarships, over the past nine years alone, Minneota Dollars for Scholars has awarded a total of over $190,000 to Minneota High School Graduates.
This year we awarded $25,000 to the Class of 2013 with approximately $5,000 coming from Minneota Dollars for Scholars general fund and $20,000 from our named scholarships.
Dollars for Scholars chapters like ours help hometown students achieve their educational goals by raising scholarship funds, establishing endowments, providing assistance with college readiness and the financial aid process, and distributing scholarships each year.
This website provides resources from our chapter to our volunteers, community and students. You can learn more about our history, goals and volunteers through the "About Us" link, and find out what's new by clicking on "News and Events."
