DAHSAA has chosen to provide Scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each.

We will be awarding ( 5 ) scholarships in 2022.

The awards are based on the following:

  • Academic Achievement ( grades )
  • Work Experience
  • Community Service
  • Honors and Awards
  • Leadership
  • Extracurricular Activities
  • Essay
  • Financial Need
  • Proof of Acceptance to an Institution of Higher Learning
  • 2 Letters of Recommendation:
    • One from a prominent community leader, teacher, or staff member
    • One from a person familiar with your character ( no family members ).
  • Application Deadline- March 31, 2022.

Applications may be obtained from your Guidance Counselor, before Christmas break. Please remember to give those who are providing letters of recommendation, ample time to prepare the letter. Individual checks for the scholarships will be made out to each student. These checks will be presented at the annual Dover Area High School Alumni Association ( DAHSAA ) picnic, in May. DAHSAA Scholarship Recipients will be expected to attend the annual DAHSAA picnic lunch at Brookside Park on, Sunday, May 15, 2022, where they will be introduced to the DAHSAA members, who work hard to raise money for these scholarships. Students and their families are invited to attend this free event.

A group photo of the scholarship recipients will be taken at this event for our DAHSAA Newsletter. All members of the scholarship committee will read all applications. The scoring is based purely on a point system. No one on the committee knows who will receive the scholarships until the scores for each criterion are entered into the computer system. All information is confidential and if printed is shredded, when no longer needed.

We want to stress the importance of completing all areas of the application.

Should any part be left blank (or be missing) the student will not be considered for a scholarship.

This year we have capped the number of accepted applications at 24; only the first 24 will be considered.

Should you have questions, please contact Shelly (Rochelle) Livingston, DAHSAA Scholarship Chair,
