Founded in 1995, Ballard Community Dollars for Scholars has awarded more than $871,000 in scholarships to 2215 students.

Ballard Community Dollars for Scholars is a volunteer-run, non-profit organization.  We exist to provide a scholarship to any Ballard senior attending post-secondary education or training at an accredited University, College, Junior College or Trade School (such as cosmetology, electrical, HVAC, automotive repair, etc.) regardless of financial situation or grade point.  All seniors who complete an application by the deadline and attend Scholarship Awards Night are guaranteed a scholarship of a minimum of $400.  We can even hold scholarship money until military service is completed.

 Our Mission

Ballard Community Dollars for Scholars advocates for post-secondary education for every Ballard student by awarding scholarships from donors with local ties.
