HANNIBAL, NY – Hannibal Dollars for Scholars officially launched a new website on March 28 through a new software tool provided by Scholarship America, Dollars for Scholars’ parent organization.
This new website www.hannibal.dollarsforscholars.org will allow Hannibal Dollars for Scholars to help students in the community access more scholarships.
Through the website, students will have the ability to create an online profile, which allows them to
apply for and be matched to multiple scholarships – on both the local and national level – in just a couple of clicks.
Hannibal Dollars for Scholars 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.
We are very excited to be able to provide this resource to our students. The online profile will allow students to to find scholarships for which they are eligible based on the information they provide.
Hannibal Dollars for Scholars encourages students to begin developing their online profiles now, to assure they are alerted about scholarship opportunities in advance of deadlines.
The deadline for our local scholarships is May 7.
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.
