The Rotary Club of Naperville is pleased to announce scholarship opportunities for high school seniors. The primary criteria for selection are demonstrated leadership qualities, school service, and community service. The following is a breakdown of the different scholarships available to students and payable for one year only.
Gene Drendel Scholarship. This $5,000 scholarship was introduced last year to honor Gene Drendel who was a distinguished Rotarian, a long-time and well-respected educator, and life-long resident of Naperville. This scholarship is awarded to one high school senior who demonstrates academic and athletic excellence.
Service Above Self Scholarship. This $4,000 scholarship is awarded annually to two high school seniors who successfully demonstrate academic excellence and a substantial commitment to service.
At-Hope Scholarship . The criterion for this new, $1,000 scholarship is for a high school senior who is able to demonstrate a dramatic academic improvement over the course of their high school career. One scholarship will be awarded for each of the five, local high schools.
Completed applications are due March 12, 2010 . Late applications will not be accepted. Please type or print in ink all information requested. If necessary, use additional paper to answer questions. Clarity and neatness are important.
Two Year Benedictine or North Central College Scholarship
This scholarship is to assist a financially needy degree seeking student transferring from College of DuPage for two years study at Benedictine University or North Central College leading to a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor in Business Administration or Bachelor of Science degree. Completed applications are due June 16, 2008.
The Project request form needs to be completed for International Committee projects that are not going to request Matching Grants or District Grants. This is a way for Rotary Charities as well as our Rotary Club to have the necessary paperwork readily available for accounting purposes as well as it can serve as readily available information for the new PR Committee of our Club. Please remember when submitting a request that Rotary Foundation and Rotary Charities cannot cover bricks and mortar types of developments.
Projects that will be using Matching Grants or District Grants do not need to complete the attached paperwork as they will be using similar types of applications in the grants --- and we want to make life easy for everyone and reduce and redundant paperwork.
