- PRIME (Promoting Rock Island Milan Education) Grant Program- funds teacher, department/school, and multi-school innovative projects and new materials throughout the district.
- Austin Academic Achievement Awards - provides scholarships to top seniors in eight academic areas and recognizes the top ten of each Rock Island High School (RIHS) class.
- Incubator.edu/Entrepreneurship Class - leads RIHS students through the entrepreneur process from idea to start-up.
- RIMEF Scholarships - awards nearly 60 individual scholarships to deserving Rock Island High School seniors helping them further their education.
