We Help Our Community's Students Succeed Through Scholarships


Blue Earth Area Dollars for Scholars® located in Blue Earth, Minnesota is a nonprofit foundation that supports academic success in our community. As part of Scholarship America's® national network of locally based, volunteer-driven Dollars for Scholars chapters, our mission is to mobilize our community on behalf of postsecondary education success for our students graduating from Blue Earth Area High School.  Blue Earth Area High School serves the communities of Blue Earth, Frost, Winnebago, Delavan and Elmore in southern Minnesota

Dollars for Scholars chapters like ours help hometown students achieve their educational goals by raising scholarship funds, establishing endowments, providing assistance with college readiness and the financial aid process, and distributing scholarships each year.  The purpose of our chapter is to raise funds so we can offer more and larger scholarships to help Blue Earth Area High School graduates meet the rising costs of a college education.  Blue Earth Area Dollars for Scholars is locally operated and supported, 501(c)(3) tax exempt foundation.  Our board is made up of people from our community that volunteer their time.
