About Scholarship America

Scholarship America works directly with students, parents, colleges, businesses and communities to help students fulfill their college dreams. Since it was founded in 1958, Scholarship America has distributed $4 billion to more than 2.4 million students under the guidance of its nonprofit mission “to mobilize America through scholarships and other educational support to make postsecondary success possible for all.” Scholarship America helps students complete their educational goals by partnering with others to design, manage and deliver the best private scholarship and education support programs in the country.

Today, there are more than 13,000 unique scholarship programs managed under the Scholarship America umbrella, including a national network of nearly 500 locally-based Dollars for Scholars chapters serving students in thousands of communities across the country, and providing assistance with college readiness and the financial aid process. Scholarship America plays a national role in further engaging the private sector in programs and policies that advance equity in postsecondary education, helping more students overcome barriers to access, persistence and attainment.
