Canastota Dollars for Scholars

Canastota Dollars for Scholars®, located in Canastota, New York, is local, community-based scholarship 501(c)(3) non-profit organization run by community volunteers.  We are affiliated with Scholarship America®, the nation's largest private sector scholarship and educational support organization. 

Our chapter was established in 1984 with the sole purpose of awarding scholarships to graduating seniors of varying abilities who reside within the boundaries of the Canastota Central School District.  With the support of our community we have awarded over a half million dollars to 895 Canastota graduates.  Our financial help helps students to pursue a post-secondary program-vocational/technical school, two-year and/or four-year college.  Through Dollars for Scholars we have the opportunity to provide both encouragement and financial support for Canastota High School students.
