The website was customized to meet needs such as keeping the local community updated on chapter news, events and deadlines; providing information on national education; and giving students and parents access to chapter scholarships, educational resources, opportunities and events.

Alexandria Dollars for Scholars encourages students to develop online profiles now to receive scholarship opportunities in advance of deadlines.

Students will also have access to volunteer and internship opportunities, as well as financial aid and college success tools and resources provided by Scholarship America.
