Scholarship Opportunities

The Chester A. Riley Scholarship Program is available to high school seniors and to current HJC students who have enrolled within the current year. To apply, just contact your high school guidance counselor or an HJC academic advisor. The program provides for ten scholarships. The first place recipient will receive a full scholarship for tuition cost for an Associate Degree Program at Huntington Junior College. The nine other finalists will be awarded partial scholarships toward their total education costs. Students from each high school are invited to participate in testing at Huntington Junior College. This program provides over $24,000 in scholarship aid to Tri-State area high school seniors.

The Riley Memorial Scholarship of $500 is awarded on an annual basis at the graduation ceremony to a continuing student who has completed at least 36 quarter-hour credits. The candidates are nominated by faculty representing all career fields. Selection is based on character, attendance, dedication to chosen field of study, and financial need. The final selection is determined by the Faculty Advisory Committee.
