Dollars for Scholars looking for sponsors

The Detroit Lakes Scholarship Foundation "Dollars for Scholars" is looking for sponsors for the 2010 scholarships.

Each year individuals and businesses have made donations to provide scholarships to local high school students. The awards go to students who attend and graduate from Detroit Lakes High School to assist with their post-secondary education. Last year over $117,000 was awarded.

Rising costs are closing doors to higher education for many individuals in our community. Through Dollars for Scholars there is an opportunity to make a strong, collective statement about the importance of education beyond high school. Donations provide both encouragement and financial support for local students.

The Detroit Lakes Dollars for Scholars program began in 1986. More members and valuable scholarships have been added every year. By joining the Detroit Lakes Dollars for Scholars, you become part of a worthwhile project that will play a vital role in helping graduates attending Detroit Lakes High School continue their education to become better, more productive citizens.
