Learn About the Ridgefield Scholarship Group (RSG)!

Winter break is behind us. Most college applications have been submitted. While waiting for responses from colleges, it is an ideal time to learn about potential scholarships that may be available to your student. 

Over 40 years ago, the Ridgefield Scholarship Group (RSG) was formed to hold and manage funds, donated by memorial and other community sources to be used to fund scholarships for graduating students of Ridgefield High School.
The RSG currently awards approximately 15 scholarships annually. Award amounts vary from as low as $1,000 to $5,000 in a year. Some of these scholarships are for one year, some may be awarded for up to 4 years.
Named scholarships often outline specific requirements--many are need-based, some focus in a specific area, such as music, science, athletic achievement or leadership. To be considered, students must complete an RSG Application and submit it no later than April 15. 
Access to these scholarships is ONLY available via the Ridgefield High School Counseling Office in the Naviance software. 
The Counseling Office has created a new opportunity for our seniors to learn more about local scholarships. Representatives from many scholarships will be available in the "College Conference Center" on January 9, 10 and 11 during lunch periods ( 10:49 am -12:49 pm ). Any senior is welcome to attend.
The Center is the back half of the Student Life Office and is located near the cafeteria. Representatives can describe their scholarships,  and encourage students to apply. The Student Questionnaire will open at the end of January, so the timing is appropriate. 
This opportunity is a great one for our seniors to take advantage of. Get a head start on finding possible scholarships that your student may qualify for.
