Great news! The 2015 Rogers Explorers program application is now available! Current eighth grade students are eligible to apply. The Rogers Explorers program is an intensive three-day, two-night program focused on cultivating skills in leadership, technology, math, science, and community service. It is developed, coordinated, and supervised by The Center for Rural Development. Classroom projects are very hands-on, and Explorers are able to actively participate in practical college courses, fine-tune leadership skills, and develop a network of friends and resources throughout our region.
The application process for Rogers Explorers is extremely competitive. The TWO highest scoring applicants from each county will be accepted. After those 90 selections are made, the next 90 highest scoring applicants to participate in the program; meaning 180 total participants for 2015. The scoring committee will be provided blinded copies of student applications, and they will not know who students are or where students are from when scoring.
THE APPLICATION PROCESS
Students interested in applying can now do so by utilizing an online application portal. Applications will no longer accept by mailed or email. By registering through the Online Application Portal students will be able to download individual “Assignments” to their computer, type/gather the requested information, and then submit each assignment online. This also includes letters of recommendation and the required current YTD 8th grade school transcript. Students will receive an email confirmation once they submit each assignment.
Once students register and sign in to the Online Application Portal they will be able to begin the application process. At the top of the application page there is a step by step video of instruction available for a detailed walk-through of the application process. School counselors interested in gaining access to the portal are more than welcome to create an account but may NOT submit applications on the student’s behalf.
All “Assignments” MUST be submitted by February 15 at 5pm. Students will not be able to submit the individual assignments after this date.
