Phil Reany Jr. Memorial Scholarship


Each year, Ridge Civic awards two graduating Ridge seniors with a $500 scholarship. Students who are graduating from public school, private school, or homeschooling and who are planning to attend college or a vocational or trade school will be chosen based on their community service history.

Applications are due each year on May 15. 

We strongly encourage local middle school and high school students to participate in our annual events to help log community service hours, but any community service qualifies you for application. Suggestions are below.
