Important financial information about your College or University and includes many Massachusetts schools - Collegiate Partner's Program

Students and Parents:  Please check out the Collegiate Partner's program on the Scholarship America® site to the right of this page. Collegiate Partner institutions make commitments to Dollars for Scholars scholarship recipients to ensure a student's scholarships do not negatively impact his or her institutional financial aid. Matching Collegiate Partners take these commitments a step further by agreeing to match a portion of the scholarship awards coming from Dollars for Scholars affiliates. If you are applying to the Granville-Tolland Dollars for Scholars® scholarship for the first time and/or are transferring to another college or university, please see the list of collegiate partners as this may have a financial impact on your decision.
