Independence Area Dollars for Scholars Chapter, which serves the communities of Rowley, Brandon and Independence, Iowa, was organized October 2002.
Each year an Awards Reception is held the second week in May to honor graduating seniors. We awarded 139 scholarships at our last reception to 72 seniors that totaled
over $71,000.

Our investment committee manages endowment funds exceeding $620,000 and several more donors fund scholarships annually.
