We Help Our Students Succeed With The Help Of The Community.


Our goal is to give Staples Motley High School seniors scholarships to help them afford higher education. We encourage individuals and businesses to sponsor scholarships and to donate money to our trust fund, from which we use the interest for scholarships. People donate money to our trust fund as memorials and retirement gifts to honor relatives and friends, some make Staples and Motley Dollars for Scholars® the beneficiary of estates, and many donate goods and services to our annual auction. If you wish to make a donation, call Bryan Winkels at 218-296-2425.
Staples and Motley Dollars for Scholars members thank everyone who made donations and helped us accomplish our goals. With your contributions we were able to give members of the class of 2019 scholarships totaling more than $90,000.
Staples and Motley Dollars for Scholars has committees for fund-raising, endowment, publicity, and awards.
The scholarships described online are an attempt by local educators, organizations, businesses and concerned individuals to recognize and reward academic excellence and other outstanding achievements of graduating Staples Motley High School students. These scholarships are also awarded in an attempt to encourage seniors to continue on to post-secondary education and retain a commitment to be life-long learners.
Students interested in applying for the scholarship awards should carefully note the criteria for each award. Seniors may apply for as many scholarships as they are eligible for. Only one application needs to be completed.
The scholarships listed are channeled through the Staples and Motley Dollars for Scholars Fund. Scholarships described here will be awarded to the recipients at Awards Night on Wednesday, May 5th, 2021 at 7 p.m. The event will take place in-person, but will be limited to students and parents. It will also be broadcast live on the Staples and Motley DFS Facebook page.
