Hood River Valley High School is now accepting applications for the 2023 HRVHS Local Scholarship Program. The HRVHS Local Scholarship Program (LSP) is a partnership between scholarship organizations and grantors across Hood River County, including the Gorge Community Foundation, Hood River Rotary, Hood River & Odell Lions Clubs, HRVHS clubs, and many, many more. These scholarships are only open to graduating seniors attending HRVHS or HROA, and all seniors are encouraged to apply!
In 2022, HRVHS & HROA seniors received nearly $600,000 in scholarships from the local scholarship program. Awards ranged from $500 to $60,000 and approximately 200 scholarships were awarded to 71 students.
