Our mission is to mobilize the local community to raise funds and provide scholarships to make post-secondary education possible for deserving students.

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.

As a reminder, our scholarship application deadline of March 31,2020 is rapidly approaching.  Stamford Dollars to Scholars remains committed to fulfilling our 2020 scholarship awards on behalf of our sponsors and for the benefit our you- our local high school seniors this year. We have over 30 scholarships worth $85,000 available!! 

Due to the unusual circumstances of students not being physically in their high schools and potentially without direct access to their Guidance Departments, we have decided that as long as the reference and transcript request sections of the application have been started, (ie. an email with name and email address has been completed by you in our system and sent to your reference and school counselors) before March 31, 2020, it will not delay your application if these sections have not been completed BY your reference or counselor.  We will be working with each school individually to get transcripts and/or confirmation of GPA/RANK/Test scores etc that are consistent with transcript reporting.  We will also be reaching out to students after March 31 if your reference contact has not submitted the reference.

Please finish the applications promptly- answer all the questions- especially the 2 or 4 year college selection, your major, your FAFSA score, etc.  You should match to scholarships when you search,  If you don't see any, you probably have not completed some questions in some areas of the application.  

We hope that you and your families are well.  Please stay connected to our social media for more updates and information. 

If you have any questions about your application, please reach out to me, Sue Oates, Awards Director, at soates@sd4s.org.

Help us create a very special scholarship. All donations received through this campaign will create a single scholarship for a local graduating high school senior in 2021 who will become the first generation in their immediate family to pursue higher education. Our goal is to raise $2,000 by February 2021. The scholarship will be awarded in June 2021.
