Find a Rosenwald School
The most comprehensive listing of Rosenwald Schools can be found in the Rosenwald Fund records located in Special Collections at the John Hope and Aurelia Franklin Library, Fisk University, Nashville. A portion of these records has been digitized by Fisk University's Franklin Library and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. A searchable database is available at the link below. While this is the most complete list of Rosenwald Schools, it is not exhaustive.
For best results, conduct your search by entering information in county and state fields only.
Note: This is a primary source record. Inaccuracies or inconsistencies are part of the historical record and may be found in this source. Occasionally a school record is not found in the cards. Cross-referencing with other portions of the Rosenwald Fund records at Fisk University, with state and county department of education records, oral history sources, topographical maps and other sources is highly recommended.
