Robert Glenn Rapp Foundation Gives $100k to Benefit Oklahoma Students

Gift Will Be Matched by Anonymous Donor to Establish New Endowed Scholarship

Siloam Springs, Arkansas (January 20, 2011) — The Robert Glenn Rapp Foundation has given $100,000 to establish an endowed scholarship at John Brown University for underserved Oklahoma students.

“We are thrilled that students from Oklahoma will benefit from the foundation’s generosity,” said Dr. April Moreton, Director of Foundation and Corporate Relations. Moreton said this is the first grant awarded to JBU from the Rapp Foundation.

The Oklahoma-based foundation was established in 1952. One of the Rapp Foundation’s missions is to support local students who have limited resources further their education. Students from Oklahoma who demonstrate good character, have financial need and who maintain a GPA of 2.5 or higher will be eligible for the Robert Glenn Rapp Foundation Endowed Scholarship.

The grant will be matched by an anonymous donor as part of the Keeping Faith Campaign $20 Million Challenge to provide a total of $200,000 for the Robert Glenn Rapp Endowed Scholarship. The first scholarship will be awarded fall 2011.
