Each year the Dollars for Scholars board works tirelessly planning a fundraiser to provide scholarship support for Rugby High School seniors. Rugby Dollars for Scholars was initiated in 2003 and since then has been instrumental in providing this support with the help of the community. To date 135 scholars were awarded a total of $66,500. Last year, the scholarship committee awarded 21 deserving seniors scholarships for a total disbursement of $10,500. We are very pleased to report that we will be able to do the same this year as well.

The Rugby Dollars for Scholars scholarship application will be on line in early April and students are encouraged to apply. The process is a little different this year, so if you have any questions, please check with Mrs. Julie Sjol at Rugby High School.
