Donor Information

The Community Based Scholarship Program of the Rogers Public Schools and the Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce has grown each year since 1990. 

Scholarships are donated each year by people in the community: from businesses, clubs, foundations, professional firms, service companies, industries, and individuals.

In 2006, scholarships came from 131 donors, and totaled $439,409. The funds provided scholarships to 160 Rogers graduates, who used the scholarships to attend a variety of community colleges and vocational training centers, as well as colleges and universities all over the nation.

Scholarship donations do not have to be large to provide aid to a student. In the past, scholarships have ranged from $75 to $28,000 and may be awarded in any amount.

Any graduating senior at a Rogers high school may apply for the Community Based Scholarships by completing an application form provided by the Scholarship Coordinators' office by the deadline. Most donors select their own recipient by reviewing scholarship applications.

Students receive notification of their award at the annual Scholarship Assembly held in May at their high school.

Creating a scholarship is easy. Just contact the Scholarship Coordinator's office. The Coordinator will send you information on creating your scholarship.
