Stamford Dollars for Scholars fills a void in our community by providing scholarship assistance to high school graduates who live or attend high school in Stamford, and who want to pursue education beyond high school. We share a passionate belief that education changes the lives of individuals and communities for the better.

We were conceived around a simple idea: together we can step in and help local students achieve their educational goals. There's no greater gift we can give our student neighbors-in-need than access to the tools to create a brighter future. Doing so tells them that we take pride in their determination and share their dreams.


Stamford Dollars for Scholars announces the online availability of its 2015 scholarship application beginning January 15th. The organization provides scholarships for students who live in or attend high school in Stamford and are pursuing full-time, either a two- or four-year college education or accredited vocational training. 

Students completing the 2015 online application have the opportunity to apply for any Stamford Dollars for Scholars scholarships for which they meet the criteria. Additionally, as Stamford Dollars for Scholars is an affiliate of Scholarship America, applicants automatically gain access to Scholarship America's valuable resources and can search other relevant scholarships opportunities.

To learn more about the 2015 scholarships available through Stamford Dollars for Scholars or to complete the 2015 online application on or after January 15th, visit the Stamford Dollars for Scholars Student and Parent Login page on our website.  Online applications will remain available through April 11, 2015.
