Awards Night

On May 29, St. Peter-Kasota Dollars for Scholars awarded 71 scholarships ranging from $500 to $2250 to the St. Peter High School class of 2019 during the annual Senior Awards Program. Scholarships are awarded from two main types of funds.

  1. Our General Funds come from individual contributions to our annual phone-a-thon or other fundraising events.  This fund supported scholarships to 25 students and included our third annual St Peter-Kasota Dollars for Scholars Renewable Scholarship of $500 each year for four years.
  2. In addition, we have several sponsored scholarships where donors have created a scholarship in their name, the name of their business or organization, or in memory of a loved one lost. This year, it has been an honor to work with 40 families to select recipients who meet the criteria they have established based on what they are passionate about. 

All total, $48,700 in scholarships were awarded. Congratulations to all our recipients!

Our chapter was also thrilled to announce that we will be awarding our first renewable scholarship to a current college student thanks to the $10,000 matching grant from Scholarship America. The Roger and Sharon Bakken/Scholarship America Renewable Scholarship will be awarded this fall. We look forward to continuing down the path of offering renewable scholarships.
