Kentucky Wesleyan College in Owensboro will be receiving more than 10 million dollars in scholarships over the next decade. The money comes from the Rogers Foundation and will be given to graduating high school seniors in the Clark County School District in southern Nevada.
The scholarship will cover the full cost of tuition, fees, room and board for up to four full years of study. 12 scholarships will be awarded annually. "Kentucky Wesleyan College is humbled and honored to have been chosen by Jim and Beverly Rogers and The Rogers Foundation as an education partner," said Barton D. Darrell, President of Kentucky Wesleyan College, who is also an attorney and a graduate of the college. "Proudly, we have produced some of our Nation's brightest and most talented visionaries and business leaders. We look forward to some of the best and brightest from Nevada joining the Kentucky Wesleyan family."
The Rogers' Fellows applicants must first apply to Kentucky Wesleyan College and be accepted to be eligible for scholarships.
