Education Grants

Since 1988, IREA’s board of directors has awarded grants to graduating high school seniors who plan to continue their education. In 2020, we awarded 35 grants (five per director district) of $2,000 each. The grant winners were chosen via a lottery-type drawing, as there are no scholastic requirements.

The application window for next year’s grants will open in January. Students from the class of 2021 can request notification when next year’s application is available.
