We are thrilled to celebrate the 2024 scholarship recipients and donors at the 41st Annual Scholarship Awards Reception! 205 scholarships - totaling $234,100 - will be awarded to Cambridge-Isanti High School seniors in the form of post-secondary scholarships. 

This event would not be possible without the continued support of hundreds of community businesses, organizations, families, benefactors, and volunteers. Thank you for your generosity and commitment to education in the C-I community!


February 2024

 Since 1990, Cambridge-Isanti Dollars for Scholars has worked toward its commitment to provide post-secondary education and training to Cambridge-Isanti High School graduates. This commitment remains the same today. What has changed is the way we ask for donations. For 30 years, we hosted a two-day Phonathon. With so many landlines being disconnected and replaced with cell phones, a challenge was created in keeping our Phonathon database up-to-date.

As a board, we came together in 2023 to look for new ways to reach our donors, which is how GIVE-A-THON was formed. GIVE-A-THON is the new name of our annual fundraiser, allowing us to continue our mission to raise donations and award 100% of the funds as scholarships to CIHS seniors. GIVE-A-THON donations can be made by mail, text, or online. Your gifts in support of student scholarships have an immediate impact! Please support our GIVE-A-THON by contributing $10, $20, or more to this worthy cause.


Head on over to our Students & Parents Page to get started! There, you'll find step-by-step tutorials for creating a login, completing your profile, applying for scholarships, and more. Have questions? Send us and email or visit the CIHS Career Center.

2023 GIVE-A-THON a Success!

It truly take a village, and our community came together in a big way this April to help raise over $16,000 for the 2023 GIVE-A-THON. THANK YOU for generously supporting Cambridge-Isanti Dollars for Scholars in our mission to provide post-secondary scholarships to every graduate of CIHS! 

We'd also like to express our gratitude to the hundreds of Cambridge-Isanti Schools staff and students, businesses, organizations, volunteers, and families who have helped thousands of C-I grads achieve their dreams through the support of our program since 1990. Our village is strong and we appreciate you greatly. 

100% of funds raised are awarded directly to students in our community. Last-minute donations to the 2023 GIVE-A-THON are welcomed and appreciated. Click the graphic above to securely submit your GIVE-A-THON donation.

Cambridge-Isanti Dollars for Scholars Virtual Phonathon 2022

For the past 30 years our students, parents, faculty, and community volunteers collectively have worked together to host a two-day Phonathon. 100% of the funds raised during the Phonathon are awarded to graduating seniors in the form of scholarships. After careful consideration, we have made the decision to follow last year's protocol and change our in-person Phonathon to a mailing and virtual campaign. We strongly support all measures to protect the health of our students, parents, faculty, and community volunteers. However, the loss of raising funds traditionally during our annual Phonathon will impact STUDENTS.

You can help lessen the impact by donating today.
