Seniors: Click below to build your profile to begin the application process. Be sure to give your personal e-mail address (NOT a school one).  We will communicate with you via that address, so check it for important prompts or information.  Once you give your basic information and set up a password, be sure to complete your profile information by clicking on the little light gray button that says:  Work on Profile.  We really need that information to consider you for as many scholarships as possible!  It includes work experience, activities (also volunteer work), and 2 essays.  You will be asked to request a teacher (or other adult's) recommendation and your transcript from your guidance counselor.  Ask the teacher/adult before you provide their contact info.  Seniors (Class of 2024) must complete their online profile by March 2, 2024.  Starting on March 3, 2024 go into "My Scholarships" to see which scholarships you match to, answer any questions for specific scholarships, and click "submit or apply" or "submit all or apply all" by April 16, 2024.  Failure to apply to the scholarships you match to eliminates you from consideration because we don't receive your application/profile.  In case new scholarships come in, be sure to check one more time by April 16.   

Graduates:  After the Scholarship Awards Ceremony in June 2024, the final step is to click on ACCEPT for each scholarship you have been awarded  or click ALL by midnight on July 1, 2024  This is a multi-step process and failure to complete any step by its deadline eliminates your scholarship(s).

PARENTS:  We do not require financial information because we assume that all students have financial need.

Recipients:  To access your scholarship money, please turn in a copy of your fall semester grades and your spring semester schedule to Mrs. Raines in the ACS Counseling Office or mail them to:  Alexander Dollars for Scholars, P.O. Box 296, Alexander, NY 14005                                                                                                                                                        

A check will then be sent to your college to be deducted from your bill or credited to your account.  The money cannot be deducted from any financial aid you may be receiving.  You will be notified when the check has been sent.  If there is a delay or interruption to your studies, your funds will be kept for you for one year.  When you have completed a full-time semester's worth of grades and also submit your next semester's schedule, your check will be sent to your school.  Class of 2024 recipients' scholarships will be kept until Jan. 31, 2026.
