Our Mission Stamford Dollars for Scholarsﾮ has a single mission: to mobilize our community to support local students who might otherwise miss the chance to pursue education beyond high school. Think about it. When was the last time someone asked you to help so local students might pursue their education dreams? If you are like us, probably rarely. Many towns in our area have community scholarship foundations that raise awareness and funds for the scholarship effort. Stamford did not have one - until now. Stamford Dollars for Scholars is the only organization in Stamford devoted solely to scholarships.. We have grown quickly and are proud to report that we will be awarding scholarships in 2012 - more quickly than any other Dollars for Scholars chapter in history. This is a testament to the dedication of our officers and volunteers and the generosity and vision of our patrons and benefactors.

Stamford Dollars For Scholars
Stamford Dollars for Scholars was established in September 2011 by Tony D'Amelio to provide financial resources for Stamford high school students who want to continue their education. He is motivated by his own experience - he received scholarship funding when he wanted to continue his education, and vowed to provide the same opportunities to others. Our chapter is conceived around a simple idea: together we can step in and help local students achieve their educational goals. There's no greater gift we can give our student neighbors-in-need than access to the tools to create a brighter future. Doing so tells them that we take pride in their determination and share their dreams. Local Dollars for Local Scholars A quality education. It's the key to succeeding in an increasingly complex world. But many deserving and smart students in Stamford find the door to higher education closed. Rising costs, dwindling financial aid and fewer scholarships have conspired to derail their aspirations.
