Oelwein Dollars for Scholars is a local chapter of the Iowa Dollars for Scholars under the National Organization of Scholarship America. This organization was officially organized in 1958 and the Oelwein Chapter was established in 1990 as a means to manage the scholarship program at Oelwein High School.
The purpose of our organization is to raise funds & distribute them in the form of scholarship money to all OCHS seniors interested in furthering their education in any way. In 2017 we awarded a total of over $100,000 in scholarship aid to graduating OCHS seniors.
Students will be completing an online profile at this site as their application process. Training on this process will be given during the year, so watch for further announcements on dates.
