One of the best-kept secrets of being a Red Raider student is the opportunity to apply for local scholarships to support higher education after graduation. The London City Schools Foundation annually awards scholarships totaling in excess of $100,000 to London students to support the pursuit of their future dreams. As a matter of fact, in recent years, the Foundation has dolled out an average of $111,000 to 59 students per year. Top students in each class may receive scholarships of more than $10,000 each.
The London City Schools Foundation has been in existence for several decades and is run by a Board of Directors composed of local community members with representation by the Board of Education, Superintendent, and Treasurer. Notice of scholarship opportunities is sent to all seniors beginning in early March. Applications this year are due no later than Friday, April 16th, 2021. All students are encouraged to apply. Students with questions regarding the application process should speak to one of the school counselors.
