Helping students become better

Our Mission:  To help give Elkhart Memorial Seniors the opportunity to further their education at a 2-year or 4-year college or university or trade school.


Elkhart Memorial Dollars for Scholars is a local, community-based organization and a program of Scholarship America. It was established in 1996 to raise funds for the awarding of scholarships to graduating Elkhart Memorial High School seniors. Since its inception, Elkhart Memorial Dollars for Scholars has awarded more than 1,255 scholarships totaling over $920,000, and has established an endowment fund through the Community Foundation of Elkhart County.


The goal of Elkhart Memorial Dollars for Scholars is to award each worthy applicant at least a $1,000 scholarship toward a two- or four-year college/university or vocational school. Dollars for Scholars chapters like ours help high school students achieve their educational goals by raising scholarship funds, establishing endowments, providing assistance with college readiness and the financial aid process, and distributing scholarships each year.
