The Rowland R. Strong and Edith H. Strong Memorial Scholarship
The Rowland R. Strong & Edith H. Strong Memorial Scholarship Fund was established at the bequest of Miriam S. Strong in memory of her late parents who were advocates of enabling young people to continue their education by earning a college degree. The intent of the scholarship is to help support student(s) with financial need to earn a Bachelor’s degree. This 4-year scholarship is renewable for up
