Who we are:

The Villages Dollars for Scholars is a 501(c)(3) volunteer community scholarship foundation, a program of Scholarship America®. The Mission of The Villages Dollars for Scholars is to award scholarships and provide academic support to local students. We support students graduating from Wildwood High School and The Villages Charter High School. Our Vision is that every student will be able to attain post-secondary education.

We help students who may not otherwise get to college.  Our students attend Universities, State Colleges, Community Colleges and Technical Schools.

 Since 2008, The Villages Dollars For Scholars has raised over $470,000 and awarded scholarships to 170 graduating seniors from our two local high schools.


Dollars for Scholars meets the second Monday from Sept- May, 10:00 AM at Allamanda Recreation Center
