CLOVERDALE -- Cloverdale Community Dollars for Scholars has launched a new website through a new software tool provided by Scholarship America, Dollars for Scholars' parent organization.
This new website will allow the Cloverdale Community chapter to help students in the community access more scholarships. Through the website, launched Nov. 7 officially, students will have the ability to create an online profile. It allows them to apply for and be matched to multiple scholarships in just a couple of clicks.
The Cloverdale Community chapter was able to customize the website to meet its specific needs, including keeping the local community updated on chapter news, events and deadlines; providing information on what's going on in education on a national level; and giving students and parents a one-stop-shop for chapter scholarships, educational resources, opportunities and events.
All Cloverdale High School seniors will be introduced and given instructions on how to create a profile and apply for scholarships during their respective English classes on Wednesday, Nov. 21. On Tuesday, Nov. 27 from 6-7 p.m., a presentation will be made to parents and students in the Knoy Resource Center.
Personal assistance will be provided in completing the application process for scholarships from both the Putnam County Community Foundation and Dollars for Scholars.
Persons can check cloverdale.dollarsforscholars.org or chs.cloverdale.k12.in.us for updates and additional dates for assistance. Both sites are linked to each other.
Cloverdale Community Dollars for Scholars encourages all Cloverdale High School students regardless of grade level to begin developing their online profiles now to assure they are alerted about scholarship opportunities in advance of deadlines.
In addition to scholarships, students will also have access to exclusive volunteer and internship opportunities that may be available to them, as well as a wealth of financial aid and college success tools and resources provided by Scholarship America.
Scholarship America's Dollars for Scholars program is a national network of nearly 1,100 local chapters, driven by local volunteers that help hometown students in more than 3,000 communities across the country.
