As the 2020-2021 school year begins, 35 local high school graduates will be starting their freshman year of college with scholarships awarded by Greater Riverside Dollars for Scholars.

The winners, selected from a pool of more than 200 applicants, were awarded scholarships ranging from $500 to $5,000, for a total of almost $43,000.

This has certainly been a strange year, and we were all disappointed that we weren't able to celebrate with our recipients this spring, as we usually do, at the Grier Pavilion atop City Hall in Riverside. Our celebrations had to be done in a different way - online through social media, here on our website, and the board had the opportunity to meet some of our students as they handed out Yard Signs, celebrating our recipients' achievements.

Greater Riverside Dollars for Scholars is an affiliate of Scholarship America. Formed in 1996, the local chapter partners with individuals, businesses and other nonprofits to raise and award the scholarship funds.

Partners include Al Miller Memorial Scholarship Fund, Alvord Management and Confidential Employees, the Greater Riverside Chambers of Commerce's six business councils, National Charity League, Katherine C. Webb Memorial Scholarship Fund, Riverside Dickens Festival and the Community Foundation Serving Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.

Merit and need-based scholarships are offered each spring to graduating seniors from Alvord, Jurupa, Corona-Norco, Moreno Valley and Riverside school districts as well as from Sherman Indian High School and California School for the Deaf. Students interested in applying for scholarships should check with their high school counselors starting in December.
