About the Scholarship
In an effort to give back to the community the Roxbury Area Chamber of Commerce began awarding a scholarship to a deserving area high school senior in 2013.
Funding for the scholarship was raised from RACC fundraisers like the Taste of Roxbury and our Town-wide Garage & Yard Sales, as well as through donations by our members and the general public.
