about the ras scholarship
The Robert A. Schuele Scholarship Fund was established to honor the life of a friend, a family man, and a business professional. The intention of the Robert A. Schuele Scholarship Fund is to grant a scholarship award in an amount that will secure the attendance of a student at a major college or university in Michigan. Each year, the Scholarship’s Board of Trustees select an applicant with outstanding character, a demonstrated commitment to academic studies, and a significant financial need for assistance. In addition to a four-year, full-ride tuition, scholarship recipients also receive mentoring and networking resources provided by the Trustees in order to maximize the recipient’s educational experience.
Applicants for the Robert A. Schuele Scholarship must have at least a 2.3 (on a 4.0 scale) cumulative high school G.P.A. (or its equivalent, to be submitted as a sealed transcript) or an 18 composite A.C.T. score for first-time freshman; or scores of 400 or more in each of the following SAT categories:
Critical Reading; Mathematics and Writing. RAS Scholarship applicants must demonstrate a need for financial assistance and maintain full-time college status throughout their academic career. If chosen, applicants must maintain unrestricted academic standing with the university or college with which courses will be taken (e.g., no academic suspensions) is required as a result of this scholarship.
Finally, applicants must be a high school senior in Wayne, Oakland or Macomb Counties or an applicant invited by a member of the Robert A. Schuele Scholarship Committee or a member in good standing of the Metro Detroit Youth Clubs.
