ABOUT FAIRPORT-PERINTON DOLLARS FOR SCHOLARS
Fairport-Perinton Dollars for Scholars (“DFS”), a local chapter of Scholarship America (www.scholarshipamerica.org) was established in 1989 by a group of volunteers interested in providing financial support to community young people pursuing higher education. The program is not-for-profit, tax-exempt, and publicly supported.
DFS is administered by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of community leaders, school personnel, parents, and students. All monies raised by the local chapter are awarded to deserving students who reside within the Fairport Central School District regardless of which school they attend. A scholarship committee selects the recipients each year based on an application process which is not need-based.
The chapter awards its own scholarships using monies raised through local fundraising projects and from direct donations. In addition to awarding its own scholarships, DFS administers scholarship funds for other local groups and organizations.
