The Gift That Keeps GivingDollars for Scholars

Every year the Southeast Polk Dollars for Scholars Foundation grows in giving scholarships to students.  At Awards Night in May 2017, over 200 students received over $250,000!  Dollars for Scholars has awarded 740 scholarships from 2001 through 2017 in the total amount of $390,000.

ALL graduating seniors are encouraged to apply.  Through our generous donors and fundraising efforts, we have scholarships available for students attending trade schools/training/apprenticeships,  junior colleges, community colleges, and four-year colleges and universities.  We are still striving toward the goal of granting every senior a scholarship in her/his chosen field of study.

Southeast Polk Dollars for Scholars® is part of a nationwide network of community-based scholarship foundations, 87 of which are in Iowa. It is a program of Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest non-profit private-sector scholarship and educational assistance organization.
