Our goal for 2016 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 2016.
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.
