About Dollars for Scholars

10 months ago

Southeast Warren Dollars for Scholars has awarded $271,275 in scholarships to 606 Southeast Warren students for the last 31 years. For the past few years, all students who applied were awarded a scholarship.

These applications are numbered and read to the Dollars for Scholars members by the guidance counselor, principals, or other personnel. Dollar for Scholars members give numerical scores to applications based on work experience, school and community activities, and appraisals included in the applications. These scores are then tabulated by personnel from the local banks. Scholarships are awarded using these final tabulations. Everything remains anonymous until after all selections have been made and presentations are made at the annual Senior Awards Night.

Dollars for Scholars raises money through a toy tractor show each February, the Fourth of July Breakfast in Milo, Trivia Night, payroll deductions from school employees, Memorials, and other contributions.
