How Are Scholarships Granted?
The North Syracuse Dollars for Scholars Selection Committee has a blind application method that is both non-discriminatory and objective, and follows the guidelines set by the National Dollars for Scholars. Students' scholarship applications are assigned a number, and identifying information is removed. Applicants are given a point score based on a number of criteria, including academic standing, extra-curricular activities and employment, goal statement, family hardship, volunteer activity and community involvement. Depending on the criteria of each scholarship, recipients can range from C students to honor students.
What is the Scholarship Amount?
Scholarships range from $500 -$1000+, depending on the donation amount determined by the scholarship's sponsor. The majority of the scholarships fall in the $500 range. Matching funds are available from many colleges and universities. Visit the national website at www.scholarshipamerica.org for a complete listing of participating schools.
