Irmo High School Scholarship & Financial Aid Directory
The scholarship list will be updated throughout the year as new scholarships become available. Please carefully check the scholarship eligibility requirements and the deadlines! When applicable, paper copies of applications will be available in the School Counseling Office. We hope you will find these lists to be a valuable resource in your search for scholarship money!
Students are encouraged to look for the link “Financial Aid and Scholarships” for each college you will apply for admission. That site will tell you what your college of interest has to offer in scholarships.
Some scholarship applications require an official transcript be included in the application packet. You would need to contact your school counselor to have one prepared in a sealed envelope. Please consider your deadline when making the request. Parchment can be used if the scholarship will accept an electronic official copy of the transcript.
