Riverdale Students Only
Please see below for several scholarship opportunities for our seniors. The application process is different this year. If you have an interest and would like assistance, please see Mrs. Ribinski in the Media Center. This information is also in the Scholarship Google Classroom.
The website (sponsored by the Foundation for Lee County Schools) to apply is https://flcps.awardspring.com. Students will create an account, complete the general application, and then as a third step, apply to the Fred & Jean Allegretti Scholarship. They may also apply to any other that they qualify for, including the Suncoast Scholarship, Jeff Sommers Memorial Scholarship, and Richard Hagy Memorial Scholarship.
- The Fred & Jean Allegretti Scholarship offers a $1000 scholarship to 5 Riverdale High School seniors. This scholarship is made possible through the generosity of the Fred & Jean Allegretti Foundation.
- The Suncoast Credit Union Foundation has partnered with the Consortium of Florida Education Foundation to award $116,000 in student scholarships for graduates of the Class of 2018. Suncoast will award $2,000 scholarships to 58 high school seniors who demonstrate financial need and strong academic performance across the 21 Florida counties we serve.
- The Richard Hagy Memorial Scholarship Fund committee wishes to extend to you this opportunity to apply for the Richard Hagy Memorial Scholarship valued at $1,000 to be awarded in the spring of 2018. Richard Hagy had a passion for educating students and served Lee County Schools for more than 30 years as teacher, coach, and principal of ALC and Mariner Middle Schools. He was named Principal of the Year and touched the lives of countless students and friends. This is a one-year scholarship, non-renewable, paid directly to the Financial Aid office of the institution the student is attending.

The scholarship will continue to carry on the legacy that Coach Sommer built so many years ago, of helping athletes of any ability become the best that they can be. This is a one-year scholarship, non-renewable, paid directly to the Financial Aid office of the institution the student is attending.
