Helping students pursue a career in business or finance

We are proud to support students who want to pursue a career in business, finance or a related field.

Rosemary Brinkley Business and Finance Scholarship

The Support Education Foundation is proud to preserve Rosemary Brinkley’s legacy by awarding scholarships to students pursuing a career in business or finance. Rosemary was an advocate for teaching financial education throughout her 33-year career as an educator and administrator. She understood the importance of practical business skills and teaching students something they could use to manage money in their daily lives. Rosemary’s passion to help the members of the education community to make sound financial decisions is what led her to volunteer on the Board of Directors of Educational Systems Federal Credit Union. She served on the Board for 46 years in various positions including many years as Chair.
