Scholarship America mobilizes support for students getting into and graduating from college. The movement began in 1958 with the first Dollars for Scholars chapters. We became a national organization in 1961-and since then, we've helped nearly 2 million students follow their dream of getting to college. As we enter our second half-century of helping students, we invite you to come and be a part of our mission.
 
Since its founding, Scholarship America has distributed more than $2.9 billion to 1.9 million students across the country through various programs including Dollars for Scholars, Dreamkeepers, and Scholarship Management Services. As we celebrate our 50th anniversary and enter our second half-century of helping students, we invite you to become a part of our mission by donating or volunteering today with your local chapter - South Dearborn Dollars for Scholars.
