We Help Our Community's Students Succeed Through Scholarships

East Washington Dollars for Scholars®, a program of Scholarship America®, is a nonprofit foundation that supports academic success in our community. As part of Scholarship America's national network of nearly 1,000 locally based, volunteer-driven Dollars for Scholars chapters, our mission is to mobilize our community on behalf of postsecondary education success for our students.

Our local chapter in Pekin IN has been working to award college students money since 1992. Please join us so Eastern High School graduates have the means to live their dreams!

We are excited to tap in to Dollars for Scholars national scholarship opportunities and their partners bringing more scholarship money to the great EHS graduates!
