The Stephen C. Rose Scholarship, supported through The Steve Fund, is in memory of Stephen C. Rose who received a graduate psychology degree and held a strong passion for diversity. The Steve Fund established this scholarship in recognition of the inspiration that Stephen gave to all of those who knew him. Stephen was a young African American man who lived life with courage, determination, and compassion. As a result, The Steve Fund was created by his family and friends to promote the mental and emotional well-being of young people of color.

The Stephen C. Rose scholarship aim is two-fold: 1) to promote Latina/o scholars; and 2) to advance the research in the psychosocial factors that negatively impact youth and young adults of color, increase understanding of barriers to success, and promote resiliency.
