What We Do For Communities
Scholarship America's community scholarship support is centered around our Dollars for Scholars program.
Scholarship America's original program, Dollars for Scholars, has united volunteers across the nation for more than 60 years. With a national network of support behind them, nearly 500 volunteer-driven Dollars for Scholars chapters work in their communities to award scholarships to local students. Dollars for Scholars helps hometown students achieve their goals by:
- Raising funds
- Establishing endowments
- Providing assistance with college readiness
- Educating students and families about the financial aid process
- Distributing scholarships
To assist Dollars For Scholars chapters, Scholarship America provides an innovative online chapter management tool called ChapterNet. This suite of software allows chapters to build websites, manage scholarships, and reduce paperwork.
Uniting Colleges and Communities
Scholarship America's Collegiate Partners program involves more than 300 colleges, universities and technical schools who have agreed to help maximize the impact of financial aid from our organization. Our Dreamkeepers program helps students stay in college when faced with an unforeseen financial emergency.
