The Elk River High School Scholarship Program awards scholarships each year to ERHS seniors.  Last year our scholarship program distributed 135 scholarships totaling over $91,000 to graduates of Elk River High School.  Individual scholarships were presented in amounts that varied from $100 to $10,000.  Funding for our scholarships is provided by donations from community organizations, businesses, schools and individuals.  Scholarships are intended to help students offset the cost of tuition, to aid in making a college education more affordable and accessible to all students who wish to pursue a post secondary education. Scholarships vary in selection criteria, such as academic success, leadership skills, potential for success or the major field of study.  


    The ERHS Local Scholarship Program runs for approximately two weeks during the first part of March each year.  Local Scholarship recipients were notified on April 26, 2018, notifications were sent through email as well as US Mail to students that received scholarships.

    The ERHS Local Scholarships will be awarded on Wednesday, May 9, 2018 at the Senior Awards Ceremony in the Zabee Theater.
