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.
