Since its inception in 2001, Ridgeview has now awarded more than 300 scholarships. Ridgeview becomes an educational resource for many recipients as they frequently participate in job shadows and internships offered by Ridgeview. To date, more than 20 previous scholarship recipients have gone to work at Ridgeview.
