Student Info:

**High School Seniors - (May 2024 grads) The application period for our 2024 first-year scholarships will open November 13, 2023.  Start your account profile and application by going to the Students and Parents tab.  There is a link on that page to a PDF which you can follow as a guide.  You must fill out all of the ** (double asterisk) items in each section of the application.  After you enter all the ** items, be sure to click on "Save and Look for Scholarships" and "apply" to the "First-Year (High School Seniors" scholarship.  The deadline for submitting your application is March 7, 2024.  No late applications will be accepted.

**First-year College Students - (May 2023 grads)  If you have not yet received your First-year scholarship, there is a two-step process you need to complete before we can issue a scholarship check.  1) Please email to us (dollarsforscholars.solon@gmail.com) a copy of your Spring 2023 class schedule as proof of full-time enrollment, and 2) you must login and accept your award in your account profile.  The deadline for accepting your scholarship is February 15, 2024.  After Feb. 15, we are not able to issue any first-year scholarship checks.

College Students (Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors) - The 2024 Continuing Education Scholarship application will open in May 2024.  The application period will close on July 1 with short interviews to follow later that month.  These scholarships vary between $1,000 and $2,500 per year and some are renewable for up to 2 additional years.  To apply, please visit the Parents and Students tab and log into your account - similar to how you did it for the first-year scholarships.  For a refresher - see the PDF on the Students and Parents tab.  Instead of applying to the first-year scholarship, make sure you apply to the Continuing Education Scholarship.
