IRSD partners with $tand By Me in free scholarship workshop

GEORGETOWN – Indian River School District is partnering with $tand By Me to host a free scholarship workshop Thursday, Oct. 26.

The two-hour workshop will run from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Sussex Central High School, located at 26026 Patriots Way in Georgetown.

The workshop is aimed at helping high school students and their families understand the resources available to identify scholarships and to share essential tips on how to write effective essays.

There will also be a scholarship fair after the workshop to meet local colleges and organizations who will be offering scholarship opportunities to students this year.

This is a unique opportunity for students and their families to meet the funders and ask important questions before submitting scholarship applications.
