Each scholarship is an investment in a student's potential.

"I am so grateful for the opportunity to recieve scholarships through Dollars for Scholars! The scholarships I received have helped me so much in pursuing my academic career. This is such a great program and I don't think I would have even known about these scholarships had it not been for Dollars for Scholars!"

"Words cannot express how thankful I am. Back when I was in high school, my family was struggling financially. For college applications, lunch and standardized testing fees, I relied largely on assistance. Your selfless gift emboldened me and showed me that I am worthy of success, love and top notch education."

- Marian Padilla, 2008 Scholarship Recipient and USC graduate with BA in Neuroscience with Cum Laude Honors


"My dream in high school was to study at an East Coast university, but paying for it wouldn't be easy. Bellingham Dollars for Scholars supported my goal through a generous scholarship. I am so grateful for the community's investment in my future. With your help I received a BS in economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and I currently work in venture capital in Seattle."

- George Huang, 2007 BDFS Scholarship Recipient


"Dollars for Scholars helped me during my freshman year of college by paying part of my tuition. This allowed me to spend more time focusing on my studies and less time wondering how I was going to pay for school. Thank you Dollars for Scholars!"
