Serving the Hannibal School District community since 1995

Hannibal Dollars for Scholars, Inc. is a chapter of the national organization Dollars for Scholars.   Dollars for Scholars, a program of Scholarship America, is a national umbrella program that includes over 1,100 locally-based, volunteer-driven chapters in nearly 3,500 communities across the United States.

Dollars for Scholars partners with nearly 500 colleges, universities and technical schools to help maximize the impact of financial aid from our organization. 

Founded in 1995 by a group of Hannibal citizens, our chapter has awarded over 494 scholarships for a total of $216,600 to Hannibal High School students.

 In 2024, one $1,000 scholarships and sixteen $750 scholarships were awarded.

Our chapter is operated entirely by volunteers.  Volunteers manage the scholarship application process, prepare all reports and manage the finances, keeping our costs very low.  This means that dollars donated and raised each year are used for scholarships, with a very small percentage used to pay for the administrative costs of managing and insuring the operation.
