The Charles City Area Dollars for Scholars is a local non-profit and volunteer 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to work with the Charles City Community to support and recognize the efforts of our students pursuing a vocation, technical, associate or bachelor's degree. Through fundraising and the generosity of our community donors, we award a variety of scholarships in a fair and non-discriminatory basis.


Charles City Area Dollars for Scholars will expand as a community partner to explore, create, promote and award a range of existing and new scholarships for Charles City area students.  Scholarships will be developed to encourage and support all students seeking a post-secondary education.


Charles City Area Dollars for Scholars is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization run by community volunteers.  We are affiliated with Scholarship America ®, the nation's largest private sector scholarship and education support organization.  With the high cost of post-secondary education and increasing reliance on loans, local scholarship programs play a critical role in assuring that students have access to educational programs and choices that best meet their needs.  Dollars for Scholars volunteers believe that higher education is our best investment and want to assist motivated and deserving individuals in achieving their goals.
