DOLLARS FOR SCHOLARS® APPLICATIONS - NOW EASIER THAN EVER!

 Our Dollars for Scholars® chapter has implemented a new software tool, provided by Scholarship America® (the national scholarship organization that we're a part of). This software will move all of ourchapter's scholarships online and it will allow us to be more efficient with our awarding process.

There are at least three reasons you'll love this new software, too: 

1. Online scholarship application for our local Dollars for Scholars awards.

The new software means we can do away with paper scholarship applications for good-and you can do all of your applying online. All you need to do is visit our chapter's website and create your personal Student Profile. You'll fill in all the same basic information as on a paper scholarship application,and you'll be able to store and update things like your GPA, extracurricular activities and letters of recommendation throughout your high school and college career-which means you'll only have to fill it out once, for potentially multiple opportunities!

 2. One profile; lots of applications.

By filling out a student profile, you'll see any and all of our chapter's awards that you qualify for-and you can apply for them with just a couple of clicks. And that's not all: across the nation, Scholarship America is working with corporate and foundation partners to add new scholarships to the scholarship database. Any time your profile matches the criteria for a new scholarship, no matter who's giving it out or where it's from, you'll be able to apply without filling out a new form. 

3. Much more than just scholarships.

Your Student Profile-and the "dashboard" where you fill it out and update it-provides a single source for a wide array of information you need to know. As a student user of the system, you'll be able to see exclusive volunteer and internship opportunities; you'll have free access to a wealth of financial aid and college success tools and resources; and you'll even be able to export a resume based on your high school achievements and accolades.
