The Rosa L. Parks Scholarship Foundation was founded in 1980 by Detroit Public Schools and The Detroit News. [1]

The foundation awards scholarships to Michigan high school seniors who demonstrate community involvement, academic skill and economic need, and who aspire to the ideals of Rosa Parks.[1]

Each year, approximately forty $2,000 non-renewable scholarships are awarded,[1] and since being founded, more than 900 applicants have benefited from over $1.8 million in scholarship money. [2]
