Searching for scholarships is an ongoing process that begins in the junior year and students are encouraged to be active in this search. The RHS school counseling office receives many scholarships annually and all are posted in Naviance. Paper applications for scholarships are no longer available. When the scholarship file is updated, students will receive an email notification of the additions to the scholarship list. If students and families have questions about a scholarship, they should reach out to their school counselor or Ms. Jennifer Huey, our College and Career Specialist, Jennifer Huey.
