Welcome to the HRVHS Local Scholarships portal! HRVHS, the Hood River County Education Foundation, and nearly 30 local organizations have teamed up to create an online application process for local scholarships. The HRVHS Local Scholarship Program (LSP) is a partnership between scholarship organizations and grantors across Hood River County, including the Gorge Community Foundation, Hood River Rotary, Hood River & Odell Lions Clubs, HRVHS clubs, and many, many more. These scholarships are only open to graduating seniors attending HRVHS or HROA, and all seniors are encouraged to apply!
In 2022, HRVHS & HROA seniors received nearly $600,000 in scholarships from the local scholarship program. Awards ranged from $500 to $60,000 and approximately 200 scholarships were awarded to 71 students.
The HRVHS Counseling Office and the ASPIRE program encourage students to browse all scholarship categories. Students with questions about eligibility should contact Ms. Sarah Ownby (email@example.com) or Ms. Meleah Bauman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Students are encouraged to apply for scholarships even if you are not sure where you are headed to school or what you want to major in. Local scholarships offer aid to students pursuing trade certificates and vocational school as well as two and four-year degrees. With over 70 available scholarships, every student has the opportunity to qualify.
Applications for local scholarships are open from January 4 – February 23, 2023.

Critical change to 2023 scholarship applications:
This year students will need to submit their transcript, FAFSA, and Oregon CIS Student Activities Chart BEFORE they will be able to apply for scholarships. Students will be able to view scholarships and scholarship requirements (essays prompts, etc.) on this website, but students will not be able to apply to ANY scholarships before all three documents have been submitted. Do not leave these documents for the last minute, as it may take up to two weeks to receive / process your FAFSA or ORSAA documents.
Your FAFSA or ORSAA is confidential. The document will be verified by one administrator and it will NOT be shared with scholarship committees. Your documentation status is confidential and secure. If you have concerns, please reach out to Ms. Ownby or Ms. Bauman.
