Most student organizations have a fee, which is necessary but can dissuade people from joining. However, thanks to Dollars for Scholars, I can more comfortably join new organizations that interest me. . These have provided me with valuable learning and life experiences that have truly shaped my time in college, and they've been funded through Dollars for Scholars, which I am so grateful for receiving.
