Students and alumni can win IRHSAA scholarships


DAGSBORO – In continuing support of IRHS students and graduates, the Indian River High School Alumni Associations s is again offering scholarships in 2018: to current college students and high school seniors.

Applications are due by Friday, March 30.

The annual IR Pride Scholarship awards $1,000 to graduating IRHS seniors. The award celebrates school spirit, not just academics, athletics or financial aid. Applicants must respond to the question: “How have you contributed to make IR a better place?”

But college students also need financial help, especially after freshman year.

So, alumni of any age can enter the IR Pride Scholarship for Current Alumni. Winners receive $500 for any college level, from an associate degree to post-doctorate. Applicants must be IRHS Alumni Association members (free registration register online).

Applications are online at

The nonprofit IRHSAA formed in 2012 to connect alumni, while supporting and promoting IRHS. With community support, the alumni association has awarded over $30,000 in scholarships in the past five years.

Scholarships are funded through the community’s generosity at the annual Beef & Brew. This year’s event is Saturday, April 14 at Frankford Fire Hall. Tickets are $35.

Indian River High School Alumni Association meets monthly and always welcomes new members. Visit the website for more information.
