Operation Round Up Scholarships

Completing an applicationIt’s that time of the year to consider your future in higher education or technical training — and how to pay for it.

Throughout the year, our members generously volunteer to round up their monthly bills to the next dollar, so our Operation Round Up Foundation is able to provide scholarships each year.
