Deadline:  Friday, January 19, 2018

By filling out this ONE application, you are applying for all Roosevelt Foundation scholarships for which you qualify, as well as other scholarships which come through the Counseling Office without a specific application form or process.

In May, 2017, 35 students received over $50,000 in scholarships awarded by or through the Foundation and other sources.  We think we will again have about 35 scholarships available to applicants this year.  Almost all scholarships are awarded on Senior Recognition Night, which will be held May 24, 2018.
