Applications for college scholarships are currently being accepted by Southern Nevada's premier champion of arts and education, The Rogers Foundation.
Available to CCSD high school seniors, those interested in scholarship opportunities are urged to discover the minimum eligibility requirements and apply directly online via The Rogers Foundation's website to meet the Feb. 8 deadline. While applicants are required to complete the SAT or ACT, there is no minimum score requirement.
The Rogers Foundation offers two different scholarship programs – Rogers Achievers Scholarships and Kentucky Wesleyan Rogers’ Fellows Scholarships.
A total of 11 Rogers Achievers Scholarships will be given away, ranging from $5,000 to $25,000 per year for four years, and the money is valid toward educational costs at any college or university in the United States.
Additionally, The Rogers Foundation is giving out a minimum of 10 full-ride Kentucky Wesleyan Rogers’ Fellows Scholarships to attend Kentucky Wesleyan College, an institution many of Jim Rogers' family members attended which also features one of the top arts programs in the area.
