We Help Detroit Lakes Students Succeed Through Scholarships

Detroit Lakes Dollars for Scholars® is a nonprofit foundation that supports academic success right here in our community. As part of Scholarship America's® national network of locally based, volunteer-driven Dollars for Scholars chapters, our mission is to mobilize our community on behalf of postsecondary education success for our students.
