Recipients, called Rogers Scholars, must demonstrate a sincere commitment to their own personal growth, compile outstanding academic records, demonstrate leadership qualities, and show a desire to serve their fellow students and communities. The award is a merit-based scholarship and only awarded to the top students at the campus.

Each year, the recipients of the scholarship are honored at a banquet where they meet John Rogers, the son of Mary Stuart Rogers, and his family. Since its establishment, the Rogers Scholarship has been awarded to more than 300 CSUSB Palm Desert Campus students, adding up to more than $1 million in awards.
