The Allegany County Area Foundation Dollars for Scholars® program was established in 2004 to build scholarships for students in the Allegany County area who want to go onto college.  All students attending schools in Allegany County in New York State may participate in and benefit from this program.  We do have a few scholarships that some students from outside Allegany County may apply for.  Please see our Who may match to our affiliate? document for this list. The ACAF Dollars for Scholars® program will help build the future of the Allegany County area and its youth by making higher education a possibility and successful careers an attainable goal for any young person with a dream.


As a Scholarship America® affiliate, the Allegany County Area Foundation is able to offer:
- Potential matching Gifts through participating Colleges and Universities
- Security from loss of other financial aid
- One standard Dollars for Scholars application for multiple scholarships

You can benefit from our partnership with the largest Scholarship Search Company!  
We are pleased that students in the Allegany County area can take advantage our partnership between Scholarship America®, the parent organization to the Allegany County Area Dollars for Scholars, and Fastweb, the leading website for scholarship and financial aid information.

All students who create a profile through our website will be able to opt in to Fastweb and match their data with roughly 1.5 million other scholarship listings from Fastweb. If you meet the applicant criteria for a Fastweb scholarship, upload any additional requirements, such as an essay, and submit your profile to apply for the scholarship!  No need to complete an additional application form.

"One Stop Shop" for Scholarships!

This partnership between Scholarship America and Fastweb is literally a million-scholarship upgrade for local students. Students who fill out just one profile through our website will be matched not only to our chapter opportunities for scholarships, but to every eligible opportunity through Fastweb's database. This is a great time saver for our students who are searching for scholarships.
