Derrick Rose announced a $400,00 college scholarship program on Wednesday. The Rose Scholars Program will focus “on students who are civically minded and demonstrate a willingness to lead.”
Based on a news release Rose says, “I hope to provide students a path to college that was not previously available to them. Investig in school-age youth has long been a passion of mine, and I am proud to continue to help children pursue higher education as a means to better themselves and their communities.”
Applicants will be able to fill out an application, write an essay and put a post on social media explaining how they have been a leader in the community. The deadline for the application is Sept. 21. Winners’ will be chosen in October.
Kudos to Derrick Rose on this accomplishment.
