Local chapter marks 25th year of helping local students pursue their dreams
Candia, NH – March 1, 2018 -- Scholarship applications for Candia residents currently attending or planning to attend a post-secondary school are now being accepted.
This marks the 25th year the Candia Dollars for Scholars® chapter has helped local students pursue their career goals through scholarships that help defray education costs. Several scholarships 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.
Chapter director Colleen Bolton says a 25th anniversary campaign will be launched this spring to spotlight the group’s work in support of local young people, and to hopefully attract more support from individuals, organizations and businesses in creating more scholarships.
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 2018-19 academic year.
