The Redwood Area Dollars for Scholars, Orrin S. Estebo Chapter® first awarded scholarships in 2002.  That year, 16 scholarships were given to the graduating    class.   In 2023, we gave out 94 scholarships.  Since we started we have awarded over 1,300 scholarships to our seniors! 

Across the nation, Scholarship America's® programs -- including Dollars for Scholars -- have given out $2.5 billion to nearly 2 million students since our founding 50 years ago.

Donations both large and small have helped our organization.  You can donate any amount you wish.  Donations of $2,500-9,999 will ensure an annual named scholarship will be awarded.   A named scholarship may be combined with another named scholarship at this level.   Donations $10,000 or more ensure that a scholarship will be awarded annually in the contributor's name.  The minimum Dollars for Scholars scholarship given by the Redwood Area Dollars for Scholars is currently $500, with hopes to increase that minimum amount.
