Scholarship Foundation of Indian River County

Dan Richardson and members of the Vero Beach Rotary Club gave birth to the concept of a locally-funded scholarship organization which led to partnering with Scholarship America's Dollars for Scholars. Through hard work, dedication and, most importantly, a very generous community, our organization grew into one of the largest Dollars for Scholars' chapters in the country, supporting over 150 students each year.

Our volunteer Board of Directors raises our funds, sets our policies, reviews scholarship applications and interviews student applicants and their families. Scholarships range from $2,000 to $20,000. They are intended to help students close the gap between the cost of college and the funds available through other sources of financial aid and their family resources.

From 1965-2013, our organization fulfilled the mission of helping local students realize their dream of going to college by awarding 9.7MM to accomplished and deserving IRC students.

In 2013, we recommitted to serve our local community and changed our name to Scholarship Foundation of Indian River County due to changes made in our parent organization that we felt would take away from our resources. Though we changed our name, everything else remained the same -- our vision and mission, our board of directors, our program, our dedicated volunteers and our commitment to serve the students of IRC.

Scholarship Foundation of IRC awards scholarships to Indian River County students with the ability and desire to pursue a post-secondary education.

Scholarship Foundation of Indian River County is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization, supported solely through the generosity of the residents and businesses of Indian River County. We award two, three, and four year scholarships to students who are residents of Indian River County, meet academic requirements, demonstrate college readiness and financial need and complete applications by our deadlines.

“My hope is that this is the start of something bigger happening in our community.”
- Dan Richardson

Founder, Dan Richardson, was right -- the tiny foundation he started has blossomed into an organization relied on by hundreds of families each year to help fund their scholar's education.

In 1965 the new organization awarded $11,360 to 20 students. That seed grew into what we are today, thanks to a generous community that believes in education. We hope new donors will join us and help a local young person realize their dreams of going to college.
