star Roothbert Fund Scholarship

Roothbert Fund Scholarship

The Roothbert Fund was created in 1958 by Albert and Toni Roothbert to help men and women in need of financial aid to further their education. The principal focus of The Fund is its Scholarships Program, through which it makes grants for undergraduate or graduate study at accredited colleges or universities. Scholarships may only be applied to study at an accredited institution based in the United States. The Fund seeks candidates who are “motivated by spiritual values,” and works to foster fellowship among them.


Roothbert Fund Scholarship
The Fund awards yearly grants and works to foster fellowship among grant recipients. Once a year, the Fund accepts applications for grants, which include essays, transcripts and recommendations. From these written applications, the Fund identifies a group of finalists to be invited for a brief personal interview. On the basis of this interview, the Fund typically selects about 20 new scholarship recipients each year. Grants are small (averaging $2,000-$3,000) and are meant to be supplementary. Aid is given for the ensuing school year.


Eligibility: Roothbert Fund scholarships are open to all in the United States regardless of ***, age, color, nationality or religious background. While the Fund does not emphasize any particular form of religious practice or worship, it seeks to provide support to persons motivated by spiritual values. The Fund has awarded grants to persons entering a wide range of careers. However, preference will be given to those who can satisfy high scholastic requirements and are considering careers in education. For more information, applicants should read with care the Founders Prologue in the History and Mission of the Fund.


Carl T. Solberg Award
In addition to its regular scholarships, the Fund has established the Carl T. Solberg Award. Candidates do not apply directly for this award. Rather the Fund may, when appropriate, identify an individual from among the year?s pool of applicants who seems to exemplify the attributes associated with the award.

The Carl Solberg Award is funded not by capital left by the founders, but by a special account established for that purpose with donations from over 100 Roothbert Fellows. The authorizing resolution provides that the Award will be given from time to time to students of history or journalism who demonstrate the diversity of interests and the breadth of mind that characterize Carl Solberg, or students who have rendered unusual service to the Fund, and who otherwise exhibit those characteristics that typify the Roothbert Fellow. The first Solberg Award was granted in 1998.
