Press release from the Rising Sun Regional Foundation
(Rising Sun, Ind.) - The Rising Sun Regional Foundation announced that it has awarded a total of $46,000 in scholarship grants to 46 graduating seniors who reside in Ohio and Ripley counties and the City of Aurora, the foundation’s southeastern Indiana grantmaking region. Each student has received a $1,000 scholarship award.
All graduating seniors who reside in Ohio and Ripley counties and the City of Aurora, who have maintained a six-semester grade point average of 2.75 or higher, and who plan to attend a post-secondary educational institution, were eligible to apply for these scholarship awards. The number of scholarships awarded was based on the respective senior class populations in the seven public high schools located in the foundation’s grantmaking region and the total number of applications received from those eligible students attending private/parochial secondary schools. Winners of these scholarships were drawn at random at each school from the pool of applications which were submitted to the Rising Sun Regional Foundation with official transcripts.
The Rising Sun Regional Foundation was created in 1994 by the City of Rising Sun in relation to the development of the Grand Victoria Casino and Resort in Rising Sun by the Hyatt Corporation.
