Underwood Dollars for Scholars® is a scholarship foundation to expand access to educational opportunities for graduates of Underwood (Iowa) Community Schools. Since 2009, Underwood Dollars for Scholars has awarded $59,050 to 121 graduates, and our organization is supporting more than 20 scholarships for Underwood graduates of the Class of 2016. The organization is locally operated and supported, non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)3, and operated by an all-volunteer Board of Directors.
Our organization has provided $500 scholarships to most recipients, and began awarding a $2000 scholarship to one graduate of the Class of 2015, which we will also award to a member of the Class of 2016. All financial support from Omaha Gives will go directly to student scholarship support. Our goal is to increase the amount awarded to additional students.
