PALMYRA — Palmyra-Macedon Dollars for Scholars will better serve students and community with the official launch of new website, online student scholarship application Dollars for Scholars® officially launched a new website on Dec. 16 through a new software tool provided by Scholarship America®, Dollars for Scholars’ parent organization.
This new website will allow Palmyra-Macedon 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 in just a couple of clicks.
Palmyra-Macedon 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.
“Creating a Palmyra-Macedon Dollars for Scholars website enhances our students’ access to financial aid, on both a national and local level,” Dr. Robert Ike, Palmyra-Macedon Dollars for Scholars board member, noted.
Counselors visited Palmyra-Macedon English 12 classes to encourage students 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.
