We Help Our Community's Students Succeed Through Scholarships


Harney County Dollars for Scholars® 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.

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. In the past 16 years, Harney County Dollars for Scholars has awarded 611 scholarships totaling $302,585. In 2013, 48 students were awarded $29,510 in financial assistance through Harney County Dollars for Scholars. Our goal is to insure that every student graduating from Burns High School and Crane High School who will be  attending a college or technical/vocational program next year will receive a scholarship.  As funds become available, Harney County Dollars for Scholars is awarding scholarhships to students who have already completed some college study.
