The Elk River High School Scholarship Program awards scholarships each year to ERHS seniors.  Our 2021 scholarship program distributed 161 scholarships totalling $147,970.21 dollars 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 will be notified in late April, notifications will be sent through email as well as US Mail to students that receive scholarships.  

    Our 2022 ERHS Local Scholarship application window is now closed.


  • Scholarship awards will be given out during The ERHS Scholarship Awards Ceremony which is scheduled for Wednesday, May 18, 2022 at 7:00pm in the Elk River High School Gymnasium.
