These scholarships aren’t about academics or financial aid, but your service as a student or alumnus of Indian River High School. All are invited to respond to the question “How have you contributed to make IR a better place?”

Again this year, the IRHSAA will award $1,000 scholarships to three Indian River High School seniors. The awards celebrate school spirit beyond traditional academics and/or athletics.

The nonprofit IRHSAA formed in 2012 to connect alumni, while supporting and promoting IRHS. Scholarships are funded through community generosity at the Alumni Association’s annual FUN-raiser, which this year was held in April.

Indian River High School Alumni Association meets monthly and always welcomes new members.
