Welcome to Scholarship Foundation of Indian River County
Scholarship Foundation of Indian River County was founded in 1964 by Dan K. Richardson and members of the local Rotary Club as a chapter of Scholarship America's Dollars for Scholars program with a vision and mission of helping local students realize their dream of going to college by providing need-based scholarships. Now known as Scholarship Foundation of Indian River County, our mission remains the same. Since 1965, we have awarded $12.4M to 2,968 accomplished and deserving Indian River County students.
In 2013, we recommitted to serve our local community and changed our name to Scholarship Foundation of Indian River County when our parent organization imposed new centralized systems and process requirements that we felt would take away from our resources and core mission of supporting local students with local dollars. We decided to disaffiliate from them and continue to pursue our mission as Scholarship Foundation of Indian River County.
