Local Scholarship Applications Announced

Seniors met in the auditorium this morning during HR period and were given a list of all the available local scholarships. Last year, over 40 scholarships were awarded totaling over $150,000. Although we do not have exact figures for all of this year's scholarships, it is pretty fair to expect an amount very similar to last year.

To view scholarship list, click here. Although parents are welcome to look at the scholarship list, only students can stop in the guidance office to pick up the applications. The exception is the Cusac application which is available as a link on the right. The presentation listed in Local Scholarship section includes the projected monetary awards. Most of the amounts are accurate but there are adjustments possible.

All scholarships due March 24 at 3:30. No late applications will be accepted.

Helen Jordan Truitt Scholarship Application and Workshop

The Helen Jordan Truitt Scholarship was established in 1987. Since its inception, the Truitt Foundation has awarded scholarships totaling more than $2 million.  Last year $115,000 was awarded to three IVC students.

Students are invited to apply for a Truitt Scholarship. The criteria for eligibility was established by the Truitt Foundation, not IVC High School.
