For Students

High School & College Scholarships


The “Unite for Success” Scholarship Program recognizes area students for their excellence in school and encourages continued success in post-secondary institutions. Beginning in 1978, six sponsors contributed $1,400. Each spring, contributions are awarded to over 18 area high schools.

Businesses interested in awarding scholarships receive a Personalized Scholarship Outline. Using this form, the business can specify the school(s) where the scholarship should be awarded and the scholarship qualifications. Qualifications can be tailored by the donor company and might include merit, grade point average, community involvement, leadership, need, or any other criteria. Donors may elect to select their own scholarship winners or have the school or Chamber volunteers select the recipient.

For more information, call the Chamber at 320-656-3800 or email Shelly.
