We Help Our Community's Students Succeed Through Scholarships

Clayton Ridge Dollars for Scholars is a nonprofit organization providing scholarships to college-bound students who live in and around Garnavillo and Guttenberg, Iowa.  The purpose of Clayton Ridge Dollars for Scholars is to expand access to educational opportunities to high school graduates.  Our goal is to involve and assist our community in the support of students and the encouragement of educational achievement.  Clayton Ridge Dollars for Scholars is a community-based effort managed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors composed of local business professionals and community leaders.  

Currently, the cost of postsecondary education continues to increase while the financial aid and scholarships available to students has decreased.  Due to the current economic situation, many scholarship providers have reduced the funds available to students.  In the current climate, the scholarships that are available to students are more important than ever.  

In response to this situation, Clayton Ridge Dollars for Scholars is turning to the community for support of our efforts to help students meet the cost of college and post-high school education and become more successful in life.  College doesn't happen by chance-community support is vital to providing students with the opportunity to attend college and to suceed.
