The Mary Stuart Rogers Scholarship fund was established in 1994 to provide monetary awards for deserving students. Recipients, called Rogers Scholars, must demonstrate a sincere commitment to their own personal growth, compile outstanding academic records, demonstrate leadership qualities, and show a desire to serve their fellow students and communities. The award is a merit-based scholarship and only awarded to the top students at the campus.
Each year, the recipients of the scholarship are honored at a banquet where they meet John Rogers, the son of Mary Stuart Rogers, and his family. Since its establishment, the Rogers Scholarship has awarded more than $1 million to students at the CSUSB Palm Desert Campus.
The CSUSB Palm Desert Campus offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees, a doctorate in educational leadership, and teaching credentials and certificates. With more than 1,400 students, it is the Coachella Valley’s four-year public university and plays a vital role in educating and training the region’s growing population.
