CSF of Bedford Dollars for Scholars will hold a Phone-A-Thon for the 49th annual scholarship fund on Saturday March 1st and Sunday March 2nd. CSF of Bedford Dollars for Scholars is the local chapter of Dollars for Scholars ®, a national program sponsored by Scholarship America®.
The MITRE Corporation, the host for this year’s telephone drive, has again donated use of their facilities for Bedford High School (BHS) student volunteers to seek pledges from the local community. This Phone-A-Thon is the major fundraiser for CSF of Bedford Dollars for Scholars scholarships. More than $50,000 was raised at this event last year, and was awarded to graduating students. Donations can be mailed to CSF of Bedford Dollars for Scholars, PO Box 585, Bedford, MA 01730.
Any graduating senior from BHS or any Bedford or Hanscom AFB resident graduating from any other secondary school, or home schooling, can apply. Scholarships are for students who will be attending a four-year college, two-year college, or technical or vocational school. Applications will be available online by March 1st, with a deadline of March 31st. For more information, please go to www.bedfordma.dollarsforscholars.org .
