The Allegany County Area Foundation Dollars for Scholars web portal is now open to accept scholarship applications for the 2018-2019 school year. The web site address is:  All applications must be completed by January 31, 2018.

Last year the Allegany County Area Foundation awarded $243,000 in scholarships to 124 students selected from a total of 248 applicants.

Please note that both current high school seniors and college students are welcome to apply for these scholarships. Our recipients are primarily students who attended a high school in Allegany County.

All students will complete their applications online including those applying for the Dresser-Rand Scholarships and the Wellsville Rotary Club Scholarships. Students are urged to begin working on their application prior to Christmas in order to meet the January 31st deadline. Those who applied last year can log back in and update the information they entered last year to apply again.
