Scholarship recipients will be asked to come share their story on video to be shown to Living Stones Church when we ask for the Easter Offering, from which the scholarships are funded. Scholarships recipients will be presented with a certificate and check at the RHS Senior Awards Assembly. Scholarship recipients will be invited to participate as Grand Marshals of the “Living Stones Ready. Set. School!” Parade on Saturday, August 4th, 2018. 


Criteria: 

  • Preferred, but not required, residency in the 46613 or 46614 zip codes
  • minimum grade point average of 2.0
  • letter of acceptance for the fall of 2018 to a college or technical school
  • three letters of recommendation, one of which written by a teacher or coach
  • statement of financial need
  • copy of your Riley High School transcript cover sheet with your name, address, phone number, and email address
  • 500-750 word essay about one of the following topics:** 

> the most defining moment of your life thus far

> a time in your life you had to overcome adversity

> how you’re an underdog looking for a change to overcome the odds


 **We’re not necessarily looking for the top students at Riley, but the underdogs! The student who has plenty of dreams and goals, but due to circumstances beyond their control, there is a larger obstacle in the way of college than most face. Therefore, while your GPA is something we’ll look at, it is your story that will make an impression.
