Contributing to our future, remembering our past


A scholarship is a gift, and scholarships serve to assist needed students from all walks of life to enter into and graduate from college, making this world better. With your help, I will give scholarships in memory of my Aunt Mahulda Gussie Brown Carrier, a Rosewood survivor and school teacher who taught  in a one-room school house, from 1915-1923. – Lizzie Robinson


On February 27, 2016, from 6pm – 10pm, The Real Rosewood Foundation, Inc. will be hosting the Fifth Annual Rosewood Scholarship Banquet to raise funds for our scholarships. The program will highlight future plans to move forward with efforts to preserve Rosewood's history while engaging the community.

The Keynote Speaker will be Ms. Leslie D. Haskin, a 9/11 survivor and author from Manhattan, NY.

GET YOUR TICKET: You can now order your Rosewood scholarship banquet ticket(s) online through PayPal using a credit/debit card, or your PayPal account. If you are unable to attend, please consider making a donation on our GoFundMe page. We thank you in advance!
