Across the nation, Scholarship America's programs -- including Detroit Lakes Dollars for Scholars -- have given out $2.5 billion to nearly 2 million students since its founding 50 years ago.

In the Detroit Lakes Community our chapter has made a big impact on the lives of students. Founded in 1985 by Wayne Benson, Jerry Tharaldson, and Tom Frank the Detroit Lakes Dollars for Scholars has given out over 1.6 million dollars to graduating Detroit Lakes High School and Detroit Lakes Area Learning Center students. You can help future graduates by donating now or offering to volunteer your time.
