First year post-secondary students may apply for Rotary District 7090 $5,000 scholarship

Area students who are currently enrolled in their first year of full-time post-secondary education are invited to submit a Rotary District 7090 Grants Scholarship Application before Dec. 31. The scholarship amount is $5,000 U.S. The permanent address of applicants must be within the boundaries of Rotary District 7090, which includes Chautauqua County.

The student must be enrolled in his/her first year of full time post-secondary study at a university, college or community college anywhere in the world. Due to Rotary’s conflict of interest policy, this award cannot be given to a Rotarian, a spouse or lineal descendant of such, etc. This general scholarship, which is open to any area of study, must be used towards full time post-secondary university, college or community college education. After committee review, the scholarship will be awarded to the successful applicant by Jan. 31.

This $5,000 U.S. scholarship will be based on the criteria of academic merit; demonstration of “Service Above Self;” and an essay about the ideals of Rotary. All eligible students must submit the scholarship application to their local Rotary Club as soon as possible and prior to Dec. 31.

The local Rotary Club remains the point of contact for the applicants. It must approve the scholar and submit the application with its club endorsement to the Rotary District 7090 Grants Scholarships Committee. A local Rotary Club can have as many qualified applicants as they can find, provided the applicants meet the eligibility requirements.
