Carl R. Young Memorial Scholarship

An online scholarship contest
for your teen!
The Dinero Teens Scholarship is now the Carl R. Young Memorial Scholarship

In memory of our long time board member and volunteer, Carl R. Young, we have renamed the Dinero Teens Scholarship to the Carl R. Young Memorial Scholarship. Carl’s dedication and commitment to Advancial and our members has been a vital part of our growth and success. His wisdom and long-term perspective helped guide and shape Advancial through many transitional moments in our history. As our young members start the next chapter of their lives, we hope this scholarship provides the same help as Carl gave Advancial for so many years.

Each spring, Advancial holds a contest for Dinero members to access online scholarships. This allows them to show their creativity and have a chance at earning cash for college. They can submit videos, powerpoints or even an essay for scholarships. All high school juniors and seniors can apply to win one of five $1,000 scholarships.
