Providing scholarships to students in Minot, North Dakota


Minot Area Dollars for Scholars® is a chapter affiliate of Scholarship America®, a nationally recognized nonprofit student aid service organization.  Founded in 1994, we are a locally operated and supported, nonprofit tax-exempt scholarship foundation.  Our purpose is to expand access to higher education by involving and assisting the community in support of Minot students, and in the encouragement of higher levels of educational achievement. 

College costs continue to grow.  State and federal funding cannot provide enough scholarships to meet these rising costs.  So more than ever, the Minot community can fill this void by encouraging and supporting education.  Through Minot Area Dollars for Scholars we have the opportunity to make a strong community commitment to education beyond the high school level.  We can provide both encouragement and support for our Minot students.


Who is eligible for scholarships awarded by Minot Area Dollars for Scholars?


Minot Area Dollars for Scholars believes that any sincere and determined student should have the opportunity to continue his or her education after high school.  Deserving graduating seniors of Bishop Ryan High School, Minot Public Schools and Our Redeemer's Christian School are eligible to apply for scholarships.
