Scholarships of America
A Humble Origin
In 1958, an optometrist in Fall River, Mass., Dr. Irving Fradkin, had a simple but profound idea: if everyone in his community gave just a dollar to a scholarship fund, it would be enough to help every student in the community attend college. It worked — and now we are the nation’s largest nonprofit, private scholarship organization.
A Growing Mission
Scholarship America works directly with students, parents, colleges, businesses and communities to help students fulfill their college dreams. Since it was founded in 1958, Scholarship America has distributed $4.3 billion to more than 2.6 million students … and counting.
