Every year, higher education institutions receive a KIP Tuition scholarship quota that has been determined by Ristek Dikti through LLDIKTI which is given during the new student admissions process. The process of determining recipients is carried out manually resulting in inaccurate scholarship recipients being selected and the selection results may not be the same based on those who participated in making the decision. This research is motivated by the need for an algorithm for determining prospective scholarship recipients that is appropriate and effective because the recipient selection process often takes a long time because many high school and equivalent students register so that they exceed the quota limit while the quota given is limited. This research aims to use a system for scholarship recipients and provide rules and knowledge, namely rough set Theory and adapted to the Rosetta application, using prospective student data during the selection process for new students who apply for the KIP Kuliah scholarship in the 2020/2021 academic year. The resulting decision is the KIP Opportunity which consists of 4 (four) attributes, including parents' income, housing status, dependents, and parental status. The results of this research using sample data from 12 people produced 6 (six) rules and knowledge of 26 rules. This research is very supportive in identifying the eligibility of KIP Kuliah recipients.
