Passionate about embodying a legacy that will empower the next generation to pursue greatness; NBA star Derrick Rose has 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 hopes 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. We are currently reviewing entries and will circle back with winners as soon as possible. You can expect an announcement by end of November 2018.
