Gananda Dollars for Scholars awards more than $35,000

June 15, 2024

The 2024 Dollars for Scholars Awards Ceremony took place on Monday, June 3, at Ruben A. Cirillo High School and handed out $35,925 in scholarship money.

Since 1991, the Gananda chapter of Dollars for Scholars has raised scholarship funds for qualified Gananda students, which are presented annually. Most scholarships require a minimum number of community service hours in addition to academic standards as Dollars for Scholars believes it is important for students to not only earn money for higher education but to also learn the value of enriching a community through volunteer efforts.

Students are eligible for a scholarship after they submit a Dollars for Scholars profile. Applications are then scored by academic performance, personal characteristics, school activities, leadership distinctions, volunteer and community service and work to determine scholarship winners.

Spotlight Scholarship: Nettie Bullis Prize. The recipient for 2024 is Aidan Giancursio.
