Attention, all high school Seniors, Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen in the St. Peter School District, start your profile NOW!

Apply for scholarships in 3 easy steps:

ALL Dollars for Scholars scholarships are competitive. Make sure you complete all three steps accurately and on time to create the best possible chance of winning a scholarship. Incomplete profiles will NOT be eligible for scholarships.

1. Create your Student Profile 

  • You can do this as early as your freshman year in high school! Keep it up to date so you don't forget to include all your activities, community service, awards, employment, and more -- plus you will save time your senior year! 

2. Build your Student Profile

  • This will take some time - waiting until the day before the deadline to start this is NOT recommended.

  • We have scholarships for students with a variety of experiences - community service, religious, athletic, academic, employment, fine arts, and more! Include ALL these experiences in your profile, so we know you qualify! 

  • You will complete information in the following areas: basic information about you; current and post-secondary school information; academic information; activities, employment and awards; essays.​

3. Search & Apply for Scholarships 

  • After FEBRUARY 15th of your SENIOR YEAR, you will need to log back into your student profile to "Search for Scholarships" to see which scholarships you qualify for and "Apply" for each scholarship you wish to be considered for (all of them!).

  • Seniors must apply for all scholarships by MARCH 31st at 11:59 pm.
