We are pleased to share the sincere gratitude expressed by several of our recent scholarship recipients:


Thank you so much for your generous scholarship! I was hesitant to attend the college of my dreams, Baylor University, but because of many generous people like you my dream came true. I am able to go to my dream school without worrying as much about its financial burden. Best wishes, AG

Thank you so much for the generous scholarship. I will be attending UMass Amherst for marketing in the fall and this money will help greatly. Your generosity is overwhelming! Thank you so much, MB

I am the parent of [a BHS senior] who recently earned a Dollars for Scholars scholarship. I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you, thank all of you, for everything you do to raise money so students can attend college. The money she earned through this scholarship will come in so handy with paying tuition. [My daughter] will be attending the Isenberg School of Management at UMass Amherst next year. She was also selected to join the Isenberg Fellows RAP (Residential Academic Program). Your kindness may seem simple to you, but it meant everything to me. Thanks again! JH

Thank you for picking me to receive scholarship money from Dollars for Scholars, it really means a lot to me.

Thank you, DB

Thank you so much for all your hard work in putting together the Dollars for Scholars event and making it easier and more accessible to receive a college education for all Bedford students, and particularly me. Have a great summer, MS

Thank you so much for presenting me with such a wonderful award! I am honored to be a recipient of the Dollars for Scholars Scholarship. I have worked so hard in high school both in my academics and in my extracurriculars. I enjoyed contributing my time to my community when I volunteered at the Bedford Food Pantry, and when I fulfilled my duties serving my community and my nation as a Boy Scout. I have loved entertaining members of my community as I played piano for a few services at the First Parish Church in Bedford, and as I marched in my school's marching band as a proud member of the Color Guard. I am so thankful for your acknowledgement of my efforts throughout my high school career as I move on to college. I look forward to being an active member of my new community at college as well! I cannot express how grateful I am for your support of my efforts as I go away to school in the Fall! I look forward to majoring in Biology and minoring in Studio Arts at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, as well as being a member of their Marching Band's Color Guard! Thank you so much for supporting me and my future. I really appreciate everything you do to help so many students in their future endeavors! Sincerely, MG, University of Massachusetts Amherst Class of 2023
