Join The Rogers Foundation on Facebook Live as they reveal life-changing college scholarships for 34 local high school seniors from schools across the valley. The Rogers Foundation will award a record amount of $2.8 million dollars – the largest amount in the Foundation’s history.
Despite the ongoing challenges these students faced, CCSD students persevered and have continued to strive, study, learn and hope. They’ve continued to dream about their futures and about the ways they’ll make this world better. And, because of that, the Rogers Foundation scholarship program has continued to thrive. The Foundation believes that the achievements of these students deserve to be celebrated.
With that in mind, The Rogers Foundation will award a variety of Rogers Achievers Scholarships, ranging from $20,000 to $100,000, and the money is valid toward educational costs at any college or university in the United States.
Additionally, The Rogers Foundation is giving out a number of full-ride scholarships to Kentucky Wesleyan College, an institution many of Jim Rogers’ family members attended which also features one of the top arts programs in the area.
The Rogers Foundation transforms lives through arts and education by offering opportunities to students in Southern Nevada through scholarships, programs, and other activities. Scholarships are awarded annually with rolling application submissions accepted in the fall/winter.

MORE INFO ABOUT THE BEVERLY THEATER:
The two-story, 14,306 square-foot film house and performance theater will feature three distinct areas including the main theater, terrace, and courtyard, each thoughtfully designed and purposefully dialed-in to allow for unique content offerings and consistent programming. Additionally, The Beverly Theater will have an on-site box office, retail/concession space, fully loaded green room (affectionately named The Teddy), catering kitchen, and educational workspaces.
The main theater will feature raked seating of just over 150 seats resting on a retractable platform that can allow for expanded standing room capacity and convert the venue into a multi-purpose black box theater with the push of a button. Multiple lighting plots will allow the theater to be used in a variety of different ways and can be staged in multiple directions. With extraordinary emphasis on the film-watching experience, the 360 square-foot screen is coupled with a motorized cinema masking system and has been designed to maximize viewing angles from every seat in the house.
Overlooking 6th Street, the terrace is strategically wired for audio and sound. Perfect for intimate performances, secondary cinema screening, and social happenings. The courtyard provides a more intimate space ideal for book clubs, educational gatherings, reading, working, coffee-drinking and more.
Powered by Meyer Sound, Cirque theater’s sound system of choice, The Beverly Theater will feature a custom audio experience with Constellation, a platform that integrates high-quality loudspeakers, microphones, digital processing, patented algorithms, and proprietary certification techniques in a flexible package. This enables The Beverly Theater to transform its architectural acoustics with a finger tap, affording incomparable sonic flexibility. The Constellation system provides audiences with a robust surround cinema package, gives performers a microphone-free experience, and provides maximum flexibility for music performances, allowing multiple musical genres to enjoy the perfect acoustics for their performance.
The Beverly Theater’s exceptional design is the work of Carpenter Sellers Del Gatto Architects. Bringing the theater to life as general contractor is Whiting-Turner Contracting Company. Grand Canyon Development Partners is managing the construction process on behalf of the Foundation.
The brainchild of namesake philanthropist Beverly Rogers, The Beverly Theater further underscores The Rogers Foundation’s ongoing commitment to supporting the arts.
