Since our first award in 1990, the Allegany County Area Foundation has awarded 1000+ scholarships. Last year we awarded 200 scholarships worth $320,000.00; we have provided over $4,000,000. to our local students since that very first award.

Across the nation, Scholarship America's programs -- including Dollars for Scholars -- have distributed $2.5 billion to nearly 2 million students since its founding 50 years ago.

The Allegany County Area Foundation has been able to help students because of the generosity of our community. We currently hold over 90 funds, including 56 scholarship funds, all but a few permanently endowed.
