Schulze Family Foundation College Scholars

The RMSFF board of trustees has overwhelmingly affirmed its support for the Schulze Family Foundation Scholarship program for graduating high school seniors from middle-income families.  This program is designed to reduce the crushing college debt burden faced by college students who have an unmet need but don’t qualify for federal grant assistance. Including the 46 new 2021 college scholars listed below, there are currently 171 Schulze Family Foundation Scholars from Minnesota, Florida, California, and Colorado who are attending more than 80 different colleges in pursuit of their dreams of becoming engineers, doctors, musicians, teachers, nurses and so much more.  They are involved in volunteer work through church and community activities, holding down part-time jobs, participating in varsity athletics, Model U.N., and math team, just to name a few.  We are very proud to call them Schulze Scholars.
