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. The Rogers’ Fellows Scholarship is open to college-bound residents of Clark County, Nevada who wish to attend Kentucky Wesleyan.

Watch the video below to learn about Kentucky Wesleyan College from two current Rogers Fellows and Michelle Sanders, Director of Finance and Administration at the Rogers Foundation. 

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 (12:1), 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 will offer a minimum of 15 annual full scholarships to attend Kentucky Wesleyan College. These scholarships are open to current high school Seniors in the Clark County School District, as well as transferring college freshmen and sophomores enrolled in a college in Southern Nevada. Additionally, each scholarship will cover 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 Kentucky Wesleyan Financial Aid Department.
