The Maple River Dollars for Scholars is a local voluntary, non-profit organization established in 1993 when the Amboy, Good Thunder, Mapleton and Minnesota Lake Schools combined to become Maple River High School.  At that time, we started providing scholarships to graduating seniors that choose to pursue post-secondary educational opportunities.  Maple River Dollars for Scholars is affiliate of Scholarship America, nationally recognized non-profit student aid service organization.

Scholarships from our Dollars for Scholars chapter are awarded based on academic achievements, participation in extra-curricular activities, other circumstances and involvement in community service.  Dollars for Scholars encourages every student to continue their education.  The broad range of scholarships available helps students with different strengths and abilities qualify for scholarship awards.  These awards of financial aid assist in making the transition from high school to college a little easier.

The Maple River Dollars for Scholars Chapter has donated over $1,000,000 in scholarships to students since its inception in 1993!
