Scholarship America

In 1958, an optometrist in Fall River, Mass., had a simple but profound idea—if everyone in his community gave just a dollar to an educational fund, it would be enough to help nearly every student in the community attend college. Dr. Irving Fradkin called his plan "Dollars for Scholars," and it has expanded into what today is the nation's largest non-profit, private-sector scholarship and educational support organization—Scholarship America.

Since its founding, Scholarship America has distributed more than $3 billion to 2 million students across the country through various programs including Dollars for Scholars, Dreamkeepers, and Scholarship Management Services. Now in our second half-century of helping students, we invite you to become a part of our mission by donating or volunteering today.

College is often described as a journey. You start as a freshman, maybe unsure of what you want to study, where your biology class is, or if youll like your new roommate. After several years of hard work, you graduate, confident and ready for your future. What family or friends may forget to praise you for is the journey of applying, choosing and making college financially possible. When choosing a college, there are likely many factors that will inform your decision. The process may start with thinking about how near or far you want to be from home.

The Federal Pell Grant Program provides need-based grants to low-income undergraduate and certain postbaccalaureate students to promote access to postsecondary education. Students may use their grants at any one of approximately 5,400 participating postsecondary institutions. Grant amounts are dependent on: the student's expected family contribution (EFC) (see below); the cost of attendance (as determined by the institution); the student's enrollment status (full-time or part-time); and whether the student attends for a full academic year or less.
