Education Grants

Since 1988, IREA’s board of directors has awarded grants to graduating high school seniors who plan to continue their education. Each year in June, we award 21 grants (three per director district) of $1,000 each. The grant winners are chosen via a lottery-type drawing, as there are no scholastic requirements.

The entry window for this year’s grant applications ended on June 15. The online education grant form and details will be available again in January for high school seniors graduating in 2018. Click here to request a notification when they are available.
