"Urbandale Dollars for Scholars has a rich tradition of helping students afford higher education. I am a proud recipient of an Urbandale Dollars for Scholar scholarship in 2005. The national Dollars for Scholars awarded me an additional scholarship, the result of members of our local chapter making connections at the national level. The scholarship made an impact on my ability to pursue and afford an undergraduate education. I am a proud Drake alumnus, but that wouldn't be possible without the support I received from Dollars for Scholars."
