About Dollars for Scholars
At the heart of Scholarship America lies our Dollars for Scholars division—nearly 700 locally based, volunteer-driven chapters serving students in thousands of communities across the country. With support from our national office and six regional offices, Dollars for Scholars chapters 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.
ChapterNet is an innovative online chapter management tool developed by Scholarship America. This technology platform allows chapters to build websites, manage scholarships, and reduce paperwork -- and it is included as part of the annual affiliation fee. Watch the video below to learn more about this powerful platform; if your chapter is interested in getting started with ChapterNet, visit the Chapter Portal. (To start a new chapter, click here; to log in if you're a ChapterNet user already, click here.)
