Scholarship for High School Seniors from Orange
Every year, the Rotary Club of Orange offers scholarships to deserving Seniors from Orange who are furthering their education in college or other recognized institutions.
The number of scholarships and the dollar amount of each can vary annually.
In general, however, the number of scholarships range between three and six, with amounts averaging $2,000.00.
The scholarships are a one-time, lump sum, given directly to seniors who have been accepted at an accredited college or institution and plan to attend the ensuing years.
The scholarships are based primarily on the financial need of the student although high school grades, activities and community involvement are considered also.
The student must be a citizen for the United States and a resident of Orange, CT.
No member of the immediate family of any Rotarian is eligible for the scholarship.
The scholarship funds are presented at an Orange Rotary Club meeting in May or June.
The attached application and supporting materials are the sole basis for the awarding of the scholarships.
