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.
