Roger B. Chaffee Scholarship Fund

Established in 1967, the Roger B. Chaffee Scholarship Fund awards a $3,000 college scholarship each year to an outstanding high school senior, in the Kent Intermediate School District, who intends to pursue a college career in engineering or the sciences.

The scholarship memorializes Navy Lieutenant Commander Roger B. Chaffee, a Grand Rapids native and Apollo Astronaut who perished with fellow crewmates Gus Grissom and Ed White when fire swept through their Apollo 1 Command Module during a pre-launch simulation on January 27, 1967.

As a bright and enduring legacy, the Roger B. Chaffee Scholarship Fund was established by Roger’s family and friends and continues to promote educational excellence throughout Kent County, Michigan.
