Dollars for Scholars launches web site

Hannibal Dollars for Scholars officially launched a new web site March 28 through a new software tool provided by Scholarship America, Dollars for Scholars’ parent organization.

This new web site, www.hannibal.dollarsforscholars.org, will allow Hannibal Dollars for Scholars to help students in the community access more scholarships.

Through the web site, students will have the ability to create an online profile, which allows them to apply for and be matched to multiple scholarships — on both the local and national level — in just a couple of clicks.

Hannibal Dollars for Scholars was able to customize the web site to meet its specific needs, including keeping the local community updated on chapter news, events and deadlines; providing information on what’s going on in education on a national level; and giving students and parents a one-stop-shop for chapter scholarships, educational resources, opportunities, and events.

The online profile will allow students to find scholarships for which they are eligible based on the information they provide.

Hannibal Dollars for Scholars encourages students to begin developing their online profiles to assure they are alerted about scholarship opportunities in advance of deadlines.
