Redstone scholarship winners from 2016.

Are you a current member, who is a high school senior or college student pursuing an Associate or Bachelor Degree? If so, you should apply for the Redstone scholarship for help with school expenses. Now is the time to act! Our application is live, and we can’t wait to receive your application and essay.

We will be awarding 12 scholarships this year to current high school seniors and college students. We’re happy to recognize, reward, and support local students as they strive for success through the pursuit of higher education. Our scholarship is open to members residing throughout the 7 counties we serve and available for any college they chose to attend.

“I would like to thank Redstone for awarding me a scholarship because it is both an honor and a financial relief. It’s very encouraging to have my hard work—both academically and literally—acknowledged, and it motivates me to keep making good grades and saving money so that I can realize my dreams,” says Haley Wheeler, a 2016 Redstone scholarship recipient.

This year, the scholarship’s essay is about innovation. Students will write a 300-word essay to accompany their application on the following topic:

Innovation, it is not just about inventions and new technologies. Share, in your own words, what innovation means to you; what you consider the greatest innovation of your lifetime; and the affect this innovation has had on you personally. If you had the ability, what innovation could you contribute to make other peoples’ lives brighter? How would you accomplish this?

We encourage all members who qualify to apply. The deadline is February 28th, so winter break is the perfect time to start working on your essay and application.
