Scholarship Application

Our application is only two (2) pages, and we hope more members will encourage their children and grandchildren to apply.

For graduating seniors in the current year, the HRFA is offering four (4) scholarships of Five Hundred Dollars each, as the committee sees fit. Awards will be presented at our July meeting, the second Tuesday of every month.

Students and parents can download the new application HRFA Scholarship Application .US. Seniors must have a grade point average of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale or equivalent to be considered. To be successful, a senior must plan to enroll in an accredited two or four year college or university the following Fall.

One of the big changes over prior years is the applicant does not need demonstrate financial need by completing the FAFSA application process and supplying the student aid report, SAR response letter.

No financial data is required!

Membership in the HRFA will also be weighted differently in this application. Notably this year, membership has its privilege.
