Shoreline Chamber of Commerce Dollars for Scholars launches online scholarship application

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Shoreline Chamber of Commerce Dollars for Scholars® officially launched a new website on January 21, 2014 through a new software tool provided by Scholarship America®, Dollars for Scholars’ parent organization.


This new website will allow Shoreline Chamber of Commerce Dollars for Scholars to help students in the community access more scholarships. Through the website, students will have the ability to create an online profile, which allows them to apply for and be matched to multiple scholarships—on both the local and national level—in just a couple of clicks.

Shoreline Chamber of Commerce Dollars for Scholars was able to customize the website to meet its specific needs; including keeping the local community updated on chapter news, events and deadlines; providing information on what’s going on in education on a national level; and giving students and parents a one-stop-shop for chapter scholarships, educational resources, opportunities, and events.

Shoreline Chamber of Commerce Dollars for Scholars is enthusiastic about the capabilities of this new website. It provides a very professional template that contains most standard information that a scholarship website should have. It also provides a flexible formatting to include additional information of particular interest to Shoreline students, which our board can easily modify as events dictate.

The new website also provides the capability for students to fill out applications on line and provides access for Shoreline and Lake Forest Park students to scholarships offered by scholarship sponsors other than the Chamber.

Specific information on our scholarships will not be online for several weeks. However, Shoreline Chamber of Commerce Dollars for Scholars encourages students to begin developing their online profiles now, to assure they are alerted about scholarship opportunities in advance of deadlines. In addition to scholarships, students will also have access to exclusive volunteer and internship opportunities that may be available to them, as well as a wealth of financial aid and college success tools and resources provided by Scholarship America.
