Carroll High School’s Alumni Association offers scholarships to incoming students, freshmen through seniors, to attend Carroll High School. These scholarships are given in memory of Carroll’s Fallen Patriots: Dale Hess ’67, killed in Vietnam, and Paul Kelly ’79, killed in Iraq, in the hope that future students may learn from their courage and heroism.

A selection committee is appointed by the President of the Alumni Association. The committee is composed of members of the Alumni Association, teachers and staff at Carroll High School, and is sworn to strict confidentiality as to protect the applicants. In no event shall any member of the selection committee be a parent, sibling, aunt, uncle, cousin, or grandparent of any applicant for a scholarship. The goal is to award at least one legacy scholarship per grade level, as well as one non-legacy scholarship. The amounts of the scholarships shall be $1,500 each for the 2018-2019 school year. The amount is set annually by action of the Alumni Association. The selection of scholarship winners is based upon specific selection criteria found on the application and evaluation worksheet, all approved by the Alumni Association.
