North Dakota Dollars for Scholars recently awarded scholarships to the following local students:

Maverick Gronvold of Rugby High School received a $500 NDDFS College Access Challenge Grant Scholarship

David McAtee of Rugby High School received a $1,000 NDDFS Returning Student and Graduate Student Scholarship

Kali Walsh of Wolford High School received a $1,000 NDDFS Returning Student and Graduate Student Scholarship

This year, North Dakota Dollars for Scholars awarded a total of $135,000 to 155 students across North Dakota. One out of every five applicants received a scholarship. Students can reapply each year between January 1 and April 1.

Students were able to apply for statewide scholarships if there was an active Dollars for Scholars chapter in their community. There are 80 active local chapters in North Dakota which award a total of over $1 million to North Dakota students each year. Since the inception of Dollars for Scholars in North Dakota in 1962, over $25 million has been raised by all chapters to support higher education for North Dakotans.

"North Dakota Dollars for Scholars and the local chapters work together to provide scholarships to North Dakotans. It is one avenue that our citizens can access to decrease their debt for higher education," states North Dakota Dollars for Scholars State Director Laura Fiedler.

Businesses and individuals are encouraged to support Dollars for Scholars, whether locally or statewide. Dollars for Scholars is a non-profit organization which is the largest, volunteer-operated, community-based scholarship foundation in the United States.
