Our goal for 2014 is to award Ruby’s Rainbow scholarships to individuals with Down Syndrome seeking higher education or post-secondary enrichment classes. Ruby’s Rainbow scholarships are up to $3,000 per awarded individual, subject to available funds for 2014.
The Maudie’s scholarship is up to $5,000 and is awarded to one select applicant per year. This individual is chosen by Maudie’s after reviewing all scholarship applications. We encourage you to submit anything that would help give us a clear vision of your personality, strengths, accomplishments and future goals.
