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 over 2.5 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 $4.3 billion to 2.6 million students across the country through various programs including Dollars for Scholars, Dreamkeepers, and Scholarship Management Services. We invite you to become a part of our mission by donating or volunteering today with your local chapter - South Dearborn Dollars for Scholars.
Scholarship America has been awarded a Four-Star ranking since 2001 from Charity Navigator. We have also been named to Charity Navigator's "Slam-Dunk Charities" and "10 Best Charities Everyone's Heard Of"
Scholarship America has received an A+ rating from the American Institute of Philanthropy's Charity Watch
