What is the Fargo Area Dollars for Scholars?
It is a community scholarship program for graduates of Fargo's six high schools - Davies, North, South, Oak Grove, Shanley, and Dakota High School.
Our purpose is to provide financial assistance to students from Fargo area schools who plan to continue their education after high school. Costs for post-secondary education continue to escalate, placing the dream of advanced education out of reach for many students. Scholarships awarded from Fargo Area Dollars for Scholars help make that dream a reality.
