Passionate about embodying a legacy that will empower the next generation to pursue greatness; NBA star Derrick Rose launched a scholarship program: the Rose Scholars.
The 2018 program was open to high school sophomore, junior + senior students who were civically minded and have an instinct to lead. 1 grand prize winner (up to $200,000), will be paid out $25k per semester for 4 years + 2 smaller winners (1 up to $20k, 1 up to $10k) will be paid out fall 2018, 1 time payment). Please read the fine print/game rules that says the student will actually have to spend the money on college/university related expenses.
Derrick hoped to inspire students to be creative, put in some work, chase dreams, change the world, make it better: #RoseScholars2018
The application deadline was September 30, 2018, and the scholarship program is now closed.
Congratulations to our winners Gabriel Lee, Madison Carmouche-Soward and Alberto Ortiz!
