Rose scholarship fund

The rose grows by God’s elements and petals of faith.  Faith plants the seed, and love makes it grow.  Everything you need to bloom is right inside of you — you can blossom into a beautiful rose.

Our MISSION

The Rose Scholarship Fund is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization. The educational scholarship awards students who are underrepresented minorities aged out of foster care (ages 13-18). We assist with finances toward tuition, a laptop, books, and supplies to obtain higher education from an accredited two- or four-year college/ university, and vocational training.

oUR VISION

Provide an annual award to a student to start the change process/mindset to increase confidence and

assurance of a bright future to pursue a college education or vocational training.

VOLUNTEER

Volunteer to become a Rose Scholar mentor. Mentors will teach students to help them become more marketable and develop career readiness skills. At-risk young adults who have a mentor are twice as likely to enroll in college. Mentors are as essential to our scholars as well as the financial assistance we provide.

OUR NAMESAKE

The Rose Scholarship Fund honors the memory of Davy & Recie Nickerson. As foster and adoptive parents with a caring and nurturing spirit that is required to open one’s heart and home to abandoned, abused, and neglected children who suffered from physical, emotional, or development issues-making it difficult for them to be accepted in society. A blessing is adoptive parents who are forever parents just as if they had given birth to you themselves.  Adoption is a permanent commitment.

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”
