This $1,000 scholarship is established for the purpose of helping with the cost of advanced education for students attending either West or Expo High Schools in the Waterloo Community Schools, particularly those students “who are not going to be winning thousands of dollars in scholarships.”  Applicants must be pursuing a career in the arts (computer graphics, painting, design, etc.) or skilled trade area such as auto repair/mechanics, welding or carpentry.


Students graduating from an accredited public or parochial high school in Waterloo who are either residing in a foster care home or previously resided in a foster care home are eligible to apply.  This $2,500 scholarship is inspired by the belief the Rossins exemplified every day: that every child deserves a loving and supportive home.  This scholarship is dedicated to those wonderful individuals who sacrificed to positively make the difference in and to the life of a child by providing a loving home to those in need.


Waterloo Warriors Hockey Senior Team members are eligible to receive a $500 4-year renewable David Aumer Memorial Scholarship for post-secondary education.  The Aumer family established this named scholarship as a way to carry on Dave’s legacy, a man that believed in these young players and their success.  One scholarship is awarded annually.


Students at East, West or Expo interested in pursuing a career in the field of education, science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) are eligible to apply for the $1,000 scholarship. Michael and Barbara Henning, Waterloo residents and community volunteers, initiated this scholarship to reflect their commitment to education and youth.  “We believe education is the key to success of our community’s youth.  This is one way we can make a difference.”
