Dollars for Scholars has 27 named perpetual scholarships that we award each year. These scholarships are recognized for donating at least $10,000 to the organization. All seniors that apply are awarded a scholarship. If we have more than 27 applications, the organization awards the remaining scholarships. All donations of any amount are invested and we use the interest earned on these investments to award our scholarships each year. All the awards this year will be $1,000.00.
We appreciate and encourage any type of donation. We are inspired to see the students further their education by attending college or a trade school and hope that the money awarded can help them do that. A huge THANK YOU to the SEW staff that donate to Dollars for Scholars through payroll deduction. SEW staff donated almost $2,500 to Dollars for Scholars this school year.
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 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 also raises money through a toy tractor show each February, the Fourth of July Breakfast in Milo, payroll deductions from school employees, Memorials, and other contributions.
