Celebrating 52 Years of Investing in the Students of Sherborn

This year Sherborn Dollars for Scholars, a local chapter of the national organization Scholarship America, awarded 18 scholarships to Sherborn students who continue to pursue higher education.  Awards were presented during the Senior Awards Night held on May 31, 2017. 

Sherborn Dollars for Scholars is dedicated to supporting academic success in the Sherborn community. As part of Scholarship America's national network of nearly 1,000 locally based, volunteer-driven Dollars for Scholars chapters, the mission of Sherborn Dollars for Scholars is to help hometown students meet the ever-increasing costs of college and graduate school through scholarship awards. These scholarship awards are funded entirely through contributions from Sherborn residents.

In addition, and in an effort to support a broader student base, Sherborn Dollar for Scholars' online portal now enables both Sherborn students and students from the wider community to explore college awards and scholarships from across the Scholarship America network for which they may be eligible.  This network connects all students with tips for preparing scholarship applications, with test preparation resources, with financial aid and so much more.
