The Ray and Marie Schlenker Scholarship is a $10,000 scholarship, payable at a rate of $2,500 per year for four years, to be awarded to up to two Johnston High School graduating seniors with a GPA of 2.5 or higher and who intend to further his/her education at an Iowa four-year college or university.
Our goal is to give EVERY JHS senior financial assistance as they continue their education beyond high school. We raise money in the community through personal and business donations, and at several events held throughout the year. The Dragon Scholarship Fund differs from other scholarships in that we strive to help every graduating senior who completes the application process, which is a six-step process. We believe everyone deserves a chance to earn a scholarship, regardless of class rank, financial need, gender, race, creed, or ability.
The Dragon Scholarship Fund (formerly known as Johnston Dollars for Scholars) is now a division of the Johnston Community School Foundation.
