Former League MVP Rose Announces College Scholarship Program
The program will award over $400,000 in tuition money and will focus “on students who are civically minded and demonstrate a willingness to lead,” according to the release, which quoted Rose saying, “I hope to provide students a path to college that was not previously available to them.”
I'm excited to share the launch of The Rose Scholars program, a scholarship program which seeks to give high school students the opportunity they need to make their dreams a reality.
