IRSPA Scholarships

Parent in Heaven (PH) Balance Scholarship

The Parent in Heaven (PH) Balance Scholarship is a voluntarily funded scholarship by members of IRSPA. It is our hope that the recipients understand that we recognize the tremendous loss when a student loses a parent prior to high school graduation and in a small way would like to offer some support to help them further their education. Students may attend a technical school, community college, or four-year college.
