About Million Dollar Scholars, Inc.
Million Dollar Scholars, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting parents and students with the ever-increasing costs of college education.
Most people understand the value of scholarships, particularly those that are open to everyone. However, most scholarships require $25,000 or more to establish, so most people are unable to be a part of a valuable scholarship program. While you can donate to your favorite university, a small donation will not get you something with your name associated with it in perpetuity.
Today, with the power of the internet you can be a part of a perpetual scholarship. Million Dollar Scholars, Inc. provides a way to contribute and receive recognition for a minimum of $100. The milliondollarscholars.org web site provides the permanent location for recognition. Each $100 donation is assigned a 10x10 pixel area on the web page with an optional image and an email, web link, or short text message. For larger donations, in increments of $100, multiple adjacent 10x10 areas may be assigned to provide for larger images. For individuals this provides a link so that scholarship awardees can see who has been so generous and impacted their lives. For businesses this provides continuous advertising for a ONE TIME TAX DEDUCTIBLE cost. If you want to see this process in action then simply check out the milliondollarwebpage.com and others like it. Many people find these pages fun and addicting. One of these web pages generated one million dollars for an individual in one year. It's not hard to imagine what can be done for a scholarship program.
The principle funds generated by selling blocks will be invested to establish a perpetual scholarship from the annual investment growth (interest). Although some overhead expenses are expected, it is not unrealistic to have $25,000 or more in annual scholarships depending on the economic climate.
Applications for scholarships will consist of a resume and an essay submitted electronically via email. These applications will be reviewed completely on merit blind of name, email address, race, gender, age, economic status, religion, or sexual orientation or any other factor other than purely merit. Scholarship payments will be made directly to the attending institutions in the name of the person awarded.
