The Rogers State University Foundation provides awards for approximately 150 privately-funded scholarships each year.

These scholarships are made possible by generous contributions of alumni, friends, foundations, corporations and area businesses. These scholarships are managed separately from University scholarships and require a separate application. The Foundation offers two types of scholarships.

  • Endowed scholarships require certain criteria to be met, such as an academic major, classification, a minimum GPA, a hometown within a defined geographic location, etc. Almost all academic departments have endowed scholarships available, although some departments have more than others.
  • Unrestricted scholarships are awarded based solely on financial need, and will require proof of need.
