Rosengren Scholarship offered to FFHS seniors
Applications are being accepted for a scholarship available to Fergus Falls High School students who enroll at the Fergus Falls campus of Minnesota State Community and Technical College.
Applications for the Chester G. and C. Jon Rosengren Scholarship are being mailed to the homes of Fergus Falls High School seniors in February.
The scholarship, awarded for the first time in 2007, has provided an average of $2,000 annually to 15-20 Fergus Falls students who attend M State. Awarded during a student’s freshman year, it can be renewed for a second year.
Scholarship recipients must have a GPA of 2.5 (C+), have financial need and demonstrate a strong desire to succeed in college.
The Rosengren Scholarship honors 1957 FFHS graduate Jon Rosengren and his father, who was a judge in the community.
Jon Rosengren was the starting center on the 1957 Otter basketball team that compiled a 26-1 record and won third place in the one-class state basketball tournament.
He attended Amherst College and the University of Michigan Law School, then went on to a successful career as a financial planner.
In a plaque at the college recognizing the scholarship, he is quoted as saying, “I am pleased that I was able to develop assets during my lifetime which can be used to enable students from my high school to receive an education.”
Jon Rosengren died in 2006.
The Rosengren Scholarship will be awarded beginning in March, and awards will be made as long as funds are available.
