The Rochester Rotary is pleased to present seven local students with a collective $15,000 in aid for college in the fall. Each year, the Rochester Rotary Club teams up with the Rochester Community Schools Foundation, the Community Foundation of Greater Rochester and the Rochester Kiwanis Club to award deserving high school seniors with financial aid to attend college.
Each recipient, in order to be considered for the scholarships, had to submit an application, essay, Applicant Appraisal Forms and high school transcripts. Each applicant was judged by a committee based on academic promise; extra-curricular activities; community service; musical, artistic, and/or dramatic talent; tenacity; work ethic; or leadership.

  • Rochester Rotary Paul Harris Scholarship (two recipients)
