Apply Now for Rotary Scholarship

 

Each year the Rotary Club of Alameda confers scholarships to outstanding students who attend high schools in Alameda. Students attending Alameda High, Alameda Science and Technology Institute (ASTI), Encinal High, Island High and St. Joseph’s Notre Dame High schools are encouraged to apply.    

This year, the club will award more than $22,000 in scholarships. These range from $500 for vocational scholarships to $3,000 for academic scholarships. Criteria include academic achievement, community service involvement, extra-curricular activities participation, financial need and quality of the oral interview.

Rotary will also award two $500 fine arts scholarships. The club will base these on nominations from high school principals.

Applications are available at www.alamedarotary.org. Students must submit their applications electronically to Les Hilger at leshilger@gmail.com no later than Friday, April 28. Rotary members will screen the applications and invite selected students to interview before Rotary’s Scholarship Committee on May 17 and 18. Rotary will recognize the winners at a Scholarship Award Luncheon on Tuesday, May 30.
