Arlington Dollars for Scholars  scholarships may only be used to pay for tuition and fees required by the academic institution you are attending.  The scholarships may not be applied to other expenses such as books or room and board.  All scholarship checks will be sent directly to the institution and cannot be issued to the student.     If you accept a "full ride" that pays for all fees and tuition, please let ADFS know ASAP, as you are ineligible for an ADFS scholarship (ArlingtonWA.DollarsForScholars@gmail.com ). This will allow other students to be considered for awards.
