The Selection Process


Multiple, annually-recurring scholarships are awarded each spring, based on merit, need and available funds.

Our goal is to positively change the trajectory of a student’s future, allowing them to afford college when it might not have been possible.

In the fall of their senior year, students who meet the criteria for the scholarship are encouraged to submit an application which includes their high school resume and transcript, a teacher or guidance counselor recommendation and family financial information.

All applications are reviewed by the RPS Selection Committee, made up of volunteer community members. Scholarship finalists are informed by late March and interviewed by the Selection Committee in early April. Students receiving scholarships are informed in mid-April before the college decision deadline.
