The executive committee of Fairmont Dollars for Scholars has made the difficult decision to not host their annual awards night on May 27, 2020.

“Even knowing that our high school seniors have already had so many special moments canceled or postponed, with the stay-at-home order still ongoing in Minnesota, we felt it was most prudent for the health and well-being of all to cancel the event,” said Mary Granheim, Fairmont Dollars for Scholars chapter president.

Scholarships WILL be awarded. Students will be notified first by email and more formally by mail regarding their status as an applicant. If they are a scholarship recipient, they will receive information on how to contact their donor to convey their appreciation.

Students will be notified on their scholarship status by May 27. Donors or applicants with questions can contact Fairmont Dollars for Scholars secretary Liz Wheeler at 507-399-2134 or
