HUBERT AND GEORGIA ROSSIN SCHOLARSHIP, a $2,500 award to a student at a Waterloo public or parochial school that has been or is currently residing in a foster care home. Hubert and Georgia not only raised their own six children, but opened up their Waterloo home regularly to young people residing in the foster care system. This scholarship is dedicated to those who have provided a loving home to those in need.
LIZ CROWLEY MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP, 2 – $500 awards to students at East, West or Expo pursuing a degree in education planning to attend an accredited post-secondary institution.
