In Memory of Fallen Patriots Killed in Action
Carroll High School Alumni Association Scholarships
Carroll High School’s Alumni Association offers scholarships to incoming students, freshmen through seniors, to attend Carroll High School.
- 5: $1,500.00 scholarships will be distributed each year
- 4 legacy scholarships (one per grade level) to students with parents, grandparents, or legal guardians who graduated from Carroll High School
- 1 non-legacy scholarship for other dedicated Patriots
A selection committee is appointed by the President of the Alumni Association. The committee is composed of Carroll High School alumni, and is sworn to strict confidentiality as to protect the applicants. In no event shall any member of the selection committee be a family member of any applicant for a scholarship.
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.
Students are only eligible to be awarded ONE scholarship during their four years at Carroll High School. The Alumni Association would like to ensure that as many students as possible have a chance to win. Students may reapply each year, even if their application was declined the previous year.
Applications are due December 1st and must be filled out online. All winners are notified by the end of January via phone or mail. Payment will be made directly to Carroll High School in the name of the winning student.
