The Scholar Dollar Program was created in 2006 through a joint effort of the Prince George’s County Government Office of the County Executive and Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) to reward students for academic excellence.
Throughout every school year, the program provides awards and special discounts and incentives to students who earn a 3.0 GPA, Honor Roll, or other significant achievement status at each report card period. To date, almost 900,000 PGCPS students have been rewarded through the Scholar Dollar program.
