Hello Volunteer,

We are delighted to announce the 2019 Scholarship America Student Volunteer Award!

With Scholarship America's continuing focus on supporting student success, and as a way to allow more students the opportunity to apply for these scholarships, we have decided to open the program to all Dollars for Scholars high school seniors. This will allow us to recognize the most outstanding student volunteers across the country.

The Student Volunteer Award program will open on Monday, March 18, 2019. We ask that you encourage students in your community to add their current GPA and volunteer activities from the last four years to their Dollars for Scholars student profiles by March 18. From there, Scholarship America staff will begin the process of identifying eligible students and inviting them to apply for the award.

To be invited to apply, students must:

  • Be a high school senior
  • Match to a Dollars for Scholars affiliate
  • Have a minimum GPA of 2.5 (on a 4.0 scale)
  • Have completed a minimum of 1000 total hours of volunteering in the last four years, and have them entered in the Activities section of their student profile

Scholarship America will award one four-year renewable National Award totaling $4,000, as well as up to fifteen one-time $1,000 awards. The Student Volunteer Award program will close on April 15, 2019.

If you have questions about the Scholarship America Student Volunteer Award program, please contact your Engagement Director. Affiliates with winning students will be notified the week of May 20, 2019.

Thank you!
