Mission Statement

Our mission is to enhance the opportunity for Iowa City Community School District high school graduates to benefit from post-secondary education through scholarships, recognition and community support.

Description

What Is the Greater Iowa City Area Student Scholarships?

GICA Student Scholarships (formerly Dollars for Scholars) is a local, volunteer-run, community-based scholarship foundation based in Iowa City, Iowa. The chapter began awarding scholarships to high school graduates in 2005. Since that time the chapter has awarded over $150,000 to area students.

Why Does Iowa City Need GICA Student Scholarships?

Graduates of Iowa City's three high schools: Iowa City City High, Iowa City West High and the Senior High Alternative Center (Elizabeth Tate) currently have very limited local scholarship opportunities, with the majority of those scholarships going to the highest academically ranked students. GICA Student Scholarships encourages all students to continue their education and will make the transition from high school a little easier by providing aid that would allow students to work less while in school.
