With a donation of $500-$1000+, a Dollars for Scholars scholarship may be named for your business, your service club, your graduating class, or in honor or memory of a special person. The Sponsor, or a representative, will be invited to participate in the awards cermony in May to present the award to the student recipient. Donations of less than $500 are welcome, as well, and will be combined to form Chapter Scholarships.
