The Center for Leadership and Social Change has opened the applications for the Ben Rosenbloom Memorial Scholarship and the Seth Rossetti Memorial Scholarship for the 2018-2019 academic year.
Ben Rosenbloom Memorial Scholarship
The Ben Rosenbloom Memorial Service Scholarship is designed to recognize students with an outstanding record of service and a commitment to a lifetime of service. Loyal Seminoles, Ben and Wilma Rosenbloom, were founding members of the FSU Parents’ Association. Ben Rosenbloom gave countless hours of service to help students and their families feel at home at FSU. His faithful dedication to the education and support of FSU students has in turn become a model of the joys and rewards of service. This scholarship has been established by the FSU Parents’ Association in deep appreciation for his exemplary service to FSU. Any rising sophomore, junior, senior, or graduate student who will be returning to FSU for the 2016-2017 academic year with a minimum 2.0 GPA is eligible to apply. The scholarship is valued at $1,000. A scholarship winner may reapply each year.
Established in 2006, this memorial scholarship was created in memory of Seth Rossetti. The purpose of this scholarship is to support one undergraduate student who is presently or who was for a significant part of his/her life the child of a single parent. This scholarship is available to all current FSU undergraduate students with a minimum 2.5 cumulative grade point average and all incoming FSU freshmen with a minimum 3.0 high school cumulative grade point average. Applicants for the award must submit a pictorial collage of at least 10 but no more than 20 photographs/images that will communicate the student’s sense of his or her personal identity and how he or she defines the concept of diversity. Collages cannot exceed a size of 15″ x 20″. The collage will be accompanied by an essay of no more than two to four pages describing the collage in terms of the applicant’s personal definition of diversity and explaining their financial need as it relates to their single parent experience. Essays must be typed and submitted using the standard U.S. 8 1/2″ x 11″ format, double-spaced, in 12-point font (Times New Roman). One winner will receive a $1,000 scholarship ($500 each in the fall and spring semesters). The collage can be in any electronic format, including PowerPoint, Word Document, Publisher, YouTube video, etc. As long as it can be uploaded or have a link available to view the collage, all creative endeavors are encouraged.
