The 2018 Ridge Alumni Memorial Scholarship is a $18,000 grant for a Ridge High senior, whether qualified to graduate or not. Please disregard language to the contrary on the application.

Three main criteria have been established by Ridge AMS founders:

  • One criterion is exceptional character in the face of adversity, demonstrated by determination, good works, sacrifice, team play, overcoming setbacks, and the ability to turn a negative into a positive. 
  • A second criterion is evidence of significant personal growth and improvement while at Ridge High. 
  • Finally, preference will be given to students for whom receipt of the scholarship award will make a difference in the student’s future, although it is not strictly a need-based award.
