We Help Our Community's Students Succeed Through Scholarships
Norman County West is a Dollars For Scholars chapter, where EVERY student who applies for a scholarship receives one. Located in Halstad, Minnesota, we provide scholarships for the surrounding communities: Georgetown, Halstad, Hendrum, Perley, and Shelly.
Our Dollars for Scholars chapter is a nonprofit foundation that supports academic success in our community. As part of Scholarship America's national network of nearly 1,000 locally based, volunteer-driven Dollars for Scholars chapters, our mission is to mobilize our community on behalf of postsecondary education success for our students.
Dollars for Scholars chapters like ours help hometown 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.
