2017 Scholarship Information
The Rockingham Educational Foundation, Inc. is proud to support the Rockingham County Public Schools. REFI is a 501 (c) 3, non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds and facilitating programs to enhance education for our students. REFI is proud to offer these scholarships that were established to honor or remember special people. Considerations for scholarships include:
The scholarships to be reviewed by the REFI selection committee are scholarships open to all four high schools. If a scholarship selected by the school’s selection committee requires an essay, that essay may be used for the scholarship reviewed by the REFI selection committee. Applicants must provide a photo and their high school transcript. All applicants must be a member in good standing in their senior class, must graduate to receive the scholarship, and must plan to attend an accredited institution of higher learning. Additional criteria pertaining to each scholarship is listed. Please check ALL scholarships for which you wish to be considered. Checks for scholarships will be paid directly to the college/university and sent to the recipient for delivery to the college in early August. Students are required to provide REFI with a receipt from the college.
Please contact Katie LaPira at 564-3218 if you have any questions.
