AROSE Foundation - Rose Scholarship

Scholarship Overview:
The Rose Scholarship was created to provide financial support to students who are seeking to continue their education and achieve their dreams while overcoming traumatic experiences. This award underlines our belief that while emotional and mental support for our youth is important, financial backing can make a difference in helping students reach their goals. This year, we are awarding graduating high school seniors who call Flint, MI or Chicago, IL their home. This award will be used for tuition, books, or other college expenses.
