As the 2018-19 school year begins, 35 local high school graduates are 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 $47,700. They and their families were honored at a reception this spring at the Grier Pavilion atop City Hall in Riverside.

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.
