We Open Doors to Education

Fergus Falls Area Dollars for Scholars is a locally operated and supported nonprofit, tax-exempt scholarship organization in Fergus Falls, Minnesota.  Operated by an all-volunteer board of directors, the purpose of Dollars for Scholars is to expand access to higher education by involving and assisting the community in supporting local students and encouraging them to higher levels of educational achievement.

Fergus Falls Area Dollars for Scholars is a chapter affiliate of Scholarship America, a nationally recognized nonprofit student aid service organization of nearly 1,000 chapters.  Scholarship America gives local chapters access to additional funds on a national basis and matching ascholarship funds.

Quality education is the key to coping and competing in an increasingly complex world.  Rising costs are closing doors to higher education for many individuals in our community.  Through Dollars for Scholars we have the opportunity to make a strong, collective statement about the importance of education beyond high school.  By providing scholarships, the private sector can open doors for local students graduating from Fergus Falls High School, Hillcrest Lutheran Academy, IQ Academy, Area Learning Center and homeschooled students living in Fergus Falls and District 544.
