Six Red Cloud students earn Horatio Alger scholarship
PINE RIDGE — Six students have been awarded the prestigious Horatio Alger Scholarship at Red Cloud Indian School — twice the number of any school in South Dakota and the most the school has had in a single year. The scholarship supports deserving young people who have overcome challenges in their lives to pursue higher education.
Since 1984, the Horatio Alger Association has awarded $100 million in scholarships to approximately 20,000 students across the country. The association supports low-income students by granting need-based awards to applicants who have demonstrated integrity, academic potential and a “personal aspiration to make a unique contribution to society.” Each recipient at Red Cloud will receive $6,000 to apply toward college tuition next year.
