Foundation Scholarships

The Foundation Scholarship Program

Each year, the Foundation awards thousands of dollars of scholarship money to the graduating class of Union High School. Some scholarships are one-time awards; others are funded through monies endowed from fundraising, trusts, or memorials.

In 2011 the Union R-XI Foundation awarded more than $30,000 in scholarship money to Union High School Graduates. Want to know who these deserving young scholarship recipients are? See the list of recipients below.

Here is the really important question: Would you like to make a difference in the life of a UHS student? For some graduates, receiving a Foundation scholarship may mean the difference between realizing dreams or just dreaming them. To make that difference, please complete the Foundation Membership Form  today, and mail it back with your tax-deductible gift, earmarked for the Scholarship Fund. Thank you for choosing to make a difference.
