Scholarships for HS Graduates





History Logs

Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Manteno

Total Budget: $3,000

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: Scholarship

Summary: We award 2 or 3 scholarships to graduates who show excellence and commitment to community service.

We provide $1,000 scholarships to 2 or 3 high school graduates going on to college. Recipients are identified through an application several pages long, asking their educational success, their involvement in extra-curricular activities, and their experience with direct service to the school and community. Rotary members include our high school principal, who publicizes the application to students who may have need.

Three members of the club read every application and score each one on a grid.

Some recipients have been active in the Interact Club at our high school, or may be related to a Rotary Member, but we are careful to include at least one student who has not been involved with Rotary, in order to be open to all who have need.

Recipients come to our club meeting to tell us of their plans for the future. The scholarships are awarded, $500 at a time, as students progress in their first year of college or university.
