The Rose Nolan Memorial Scholarship award was offered in dedication and memory of Rose Nolan, who was the mother of Ted Nolan. Ted holds the fundamental conviction that women are our world’s greatest source of strength. He is aware of the impact his mother Rose had on him personally and is aware that without her support and affection, he would not be the person he is today.
Ted’s life was forever changed by Rose’s untimely passing in 1981 at the hands of a drunk driver. She made a significant and lasting impact on his family’s lives. The emphasis and significance she placed on family, education, and the community served as a guide for them as well as a source of support and encouragement.
Overview of the Scholarship
The Ted Nolan Foundation donated $125,000 to the Rose Nolan Memorial Scholarship Fund in 2019-2022, and the IIC was honored to welcome this gift. The IIC and Indspire collaborated through the Building Brighter Futures program after the kind donation to acquire extra matching funding for the award.
