The Detroit Lakes scholarship Foundation "Dollars for Scholars" hosts an award ceremony in late April. Every year since 1986, local individuals and businesses have made donations to provide scholarships to high school students to assist with their post secondary education.

Last year, over $117,000 was given away. There is one application for students to fill out, which then qualifies them for most of the available scholarships. The Paulson Scholarship requires an additional two forms that are included in the packet. This award is substantial, with criteria ranging from financial need to academic excellence and community involvement.

Many scholarships are available for both 4-year and 2-year college or technical programs. Please contact Doreen Richter at 847-4494 ext. 2178 if you have any questions.
