First, let's talk what you could win: 1 grand prize winner for up to $200k (paid out $25k per semester for 4 years) + 2 smaller winners for up to $20k (paid out around October 2018, 1 time payment)

Students can apply, or a parent/grandparent/best friend/guardian/aunt/uncle can apply on a students' behalf (that was Derrick's mom's idea!)

The student will need to have:

  • Motivation. Ambition. Drive. Creativity. Organization. Make sure you show this in your application!
  • Effort. We are looking for a minimum of a  3.0+ GPA with a 1230+ SAT score and/or 21+ ACT score 

USA residents (including Puerto Rico) can apply August 1-September, 30, 2018. We will read applications and announce our winners around October 15, 2018.

So here's what to do:

  • Enter your school as well as personal information to give us some insight.  
  • Type out an essay (600 words or less)
  • Upload a post on your public social media page, a photo and/or video that includes #RoseScholars2018 and shows us why + how you have been a leader in your community.

We do have some guidelines, and we need you to read them <--
