Announcing Dollars for Scholars Student Volunteer Award Recipients

636x316xhero-sva-nodate.png.pagespeed.ic.avEqsWEjOlAs the school year winds down and students enjoy summer vacation, Scholarship America® Dollars for Scholars® affiliates are also celebrating another successful year of supporting local students. We couldn’t be more excited to share in those festivities with the announcement of 2015 Dollars for Scholars Student Volunteer Award (SVA) recipients.

The SVA is a national scholarship program offered by Scholarship America, recognizing students who embody the volunteer spirit of Dollars for Scholars. Student volunteers are an invaluable resource in their communities, and we’re proud to recognize their hard work.

This year, 17 students were recognized as SVA recipients by nomination from their local affiliate. Each student receives a $1,000 scholarship, and one National Student Volunteer of the Year (stay tuned for that announcement later this year!) receives a scholarship renewable for up to three years, totaling $4,000.

Together, the following SVA recipients represent a staggering 39,000 volunteer hours, as well as decades’ worth of involvement in community activities – a testament to their commitment to their community and to their postsecondary studies.

Congratulations to 2015 SVA recipients!
