Rosa L. Parks Michigan Scholarships


Scholarship Value: $2,000
Awards Available: 40

The Rosa Parks Scholarship Foundation offers a $2,000, non-renewable scholarship to Michigan high school graduating seniors. Winners are selected on the basis of scholarship, leadership, financial need, and dedication to the civil rights principles of Rosa L. Parks, whose historic stand against racial prejudice in 1955 brought her national recognition. The Foundation was established in 1980 to provide equal-opportunity scholarships to Michigan high school seniors.

Scholarships to be applied to tuition, books and/or fees, for first year of college only (cannot be applied to room/board or other expenses).

A key determining factor in judging is 'financial need.' Students with numerous other scholarships (especially full-tuition scholarships) will receive a very low rating for 'financial need,' virtually eliminating them from contention for this scholarship. Because of this, these students may choose not to complete the Rosa Parks Scholarship Foundation application process.

APPLICANTS MUST:

1. Graduate by August 2019.

2. Have GPA of 2.5 or above.

3. Describe financial need.

4. Complete application form and essay.

5. Document community activities.

6. Furnish official copies of high school transcript and ACT or SAT results.

8. Furnish two letters of recommendation (at least one from a school representative; also suggest clergy, community and/or civic representative).

Please write an essay of 200-300 words (include a heading/topic). Segregation was the defining social issue when Rosa Parks took her historic stand. Describe a social issue that you think should be addressed today. How will YOU use the principles of Rosa Parks to address it?
