RS Scholarships

The Rogers Scholars Program currently partners with 20 different colleges and universities that offer exclusive college scholarship opportunities to graduates of the Rogers Scholars Program. In order to be eligible to receive scholarship offers, gradates must fulfill the community service requirement of the program within one year of their program completion date. Additionally, students have to meet the academic requirements for each partner university. Each individual academic partner has their own specific scholarship requirements. Students are encouraged to speak to the universities as soon as possible into their senior year to make sure the scholarship information is still the same. Scholarship changes often happen annually so it’s important that students communicate with the partner universities they are interested in.
