The number of scholarships awarded was based on the respective senior class populations in the seven public high schools located in the foundation’s grantmaking region and the total number of applications received from those eligible students attending private/parochial secondary schools.  Winners of these scholarships were drawn at random at each school from the pool of applications which were submitted to the Rising Sun Regional Foundation with official transcripts.

The Rising Sun Regional Foundation is funded by the Rising Star Casino Resort, owned by Full House Resorts, Inc., which makes monthly contributions to the foundation based on a percentage of its Adjusted Gross Revenue.
