Foundation accepting scholarship applicants

Local high school seniors are encouraged to apply for available scholarships from the local

Hollis/Brookline chapter of Dollars for Scholars,

a community-based, volunteer run organization that aims to help students achieve their educational goals by raising scholarship funds, establishing endowments, providing assistance with college readiness and distributing scholarships each year.

Two different scholarship funds are available for students graduating from Hollis Brookline High School this year who plan to continue their path to higher education.

The Hollis Brookline Dollars for Scholars scholarships are awarded to Hollis and Brookline students graduating from Hollis Brookline High School who exhibit excellence in academics, leadership in extra-curricular activities, community service/involvement and an interest in learning.

Secondly, the William E. and Lorraine W. Dubbens Scholarship is for seniors from Brookline who are going on to higher education. This scholarship is suited for those who may not excel in academics, but who demonstrate a strong motivation to achieve their potential.

More information is available on their website, hollis The deadline for both applications is March 21.
