The Jackie Roberts Memorial Scholarship

Courage MKE believes that everyone should have access to post high school education whether through a trade school, certificate program or four-year university. Since 2015, we have provided over $22,000.00 in scholarships for post high school education.  


The Jackie Roberts Memorial Scholarship is awarded to high school juniors and seniors who are members of their school’s Gay Straight Alliance (or equivalent) and is to be applied toward their post high school education. The scholarship is paid directly to the university, college, or trade school into which the recipient has been accepted.
