Candia Dollars for Scholars® Hopes to Attract Critical Support for Local Students

February 11, 2021 - The Candia Dollars for Scholars® chapter is reaching out to local businesses, organizations and individuals interested in investing in a young person's future.

For more than 25 years, the group has helped local students pursue their career goals through scholarships that help defray education costs. Several scholarships made possible by Candia organizations and businesses are distributed each year to local high school seniors and current college students in support of their studies at two- and four-year colleges, universities, community colleges and vocational schools. 

Scholarship applications for Candia residents will soon be accepted for the 2021-22 academic year, says chapter director Colleen Bolton, "but we need financial assistance to support our efforts going into the coming year."

Donations will help defray operating and other costs, as the chapter continues to meet the needs of young people planning to or attending school.  Says Bolton: "Your donation, large or small, is an investment in the future of bright, talented and motivated Candia students."

She adds that an anonymous donor will match the first $200 raised and anyone donating can also offer to match donor amounts.

Those interested in donating can access an online form on the website, www.candia.dollarsforscholars.org. To learn more about donation matches, email colleen.bolton@comcast.net.

Those planning to apply for aid can visit candia.dollarsforscholars.org and click on the "student and parent" tab to complete the on-line application.  The deadline to apply is May 1 for awards distributed for the 2020-21 academic year.
