Rogers’ Fellows

Kentucky Wesleyan College Rogers’ Fellows Scholarship

The Rogers Foundation, an educational non-profit, was established by James E. Rogers, a Kentucky-born, long-time Las Vegas resident. It is open to college-bound residents of Clark County, Nevada who wish to attend Kentucky Wesleyan.

Named in Princeton’s 2016 “Best of the Southeast” colleges, Kentucky Wesleyan College is a small, private institution founded in 1858. With small faculty to student ratios (11:1), Kentucky Wesleyan offers courses of study in Business, Management, Marketing, and Related Support Services; Biological and Biomedical Sciences; Education; Homeland Security, Law Enforcement, Firefighting and Related Protective Services; and Visual and Performing Arts, and others.

The Rogers Foundation offers up to 15 annual full scholarships (beginning with the 2016-2017 academic year) for graduates of the Clark Country School District who wish to attend Kentucky Wesleyan, covering the full cost of tuition, fees, and room and board. Each award recipient will receive the scholarship for up to four full years of study.

Applicants must apply to Kentucky Wesleyan and be accepted in order to be eligible for these scholarships.  Scholarship applications are available on The Rogers Foundation web site; awarded funds will be distributed to students via the KWC Financial Aid Department.
