We Help Our Community's Students Succeed Through Scholarships

Sauk Prairie Dollars for Scholars is a non-profit organization located in Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin, governed by a group of dedicated business, community, and education representatives. The purpose of the Sauk Prairie Dollars for Scholars organization is to administer financial aid in the form of scholarships to be awarded exclusively to Sauk Prairie High School students who have achieved academic excellence and plan to pursue a post-secondary education.  Formerly named Sauk Prairie Foundation for Academic Excellence, we are still the same organization in all ways.  The name change has allowed our chapter to be a more recognizable member of a nationally-branded movement.

The scholarship foundation was established in 1987. The value of the scholarships awarded to Sauk Prairie High School students has grown dramatically since then due to the tremendous generosity of our scholarship donors. We awarded scholarships totaling over $145,000 to 67 students from the Class of 2019!

Our Dollars for Scholars chapter 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 post-secondary education success for our students.

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.
