LOCAL SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
Each year, local businesses and community agencies contact our office with scholarship opportunities for Byron High School students. These scholarships range from $250 to $2,000 and above. The scholarships are based on a variety of criteria such as monetary need, intended programs of study, past accomplishments/ involvements, and/or academic merit. The scholarship offerings vary from year to year depending on the availability of funds from the community sources.
