This includes trade and technical institutes, community and junior colleges, four-year colleges and universities. To date we have given over $1,486,457 to more than 909 students. Our scholarships have helped students pursue careers in diesel mechanics, nursing, culinary arts, electronics, teacher education, social work, broadcasting, biology, art, computer science, auto maintenance, graphic arts, engineering, and much more. What's more, scholarship recipients may be eligible for matching financial aid from their participating college or vocational/technical school (usually based on financial need).

Our goal

Gettysburg Area Dollars for Scholars money goes directly to where it is needed, paying a portion of today's substantial educational costs so that more students can afford higher education. Our motto is to find the right student and match them with the right scholarship to achieve the right outcome. Our hope is that these students will remember that their community helped them and return as productive members.
