Rotary Club of Erie Scholarship Foundation
Through the Foundation, worthy young men and women who have completed their secondary education may acquire needed help in achieving higher education above high school, which might otherwise be unavailable to them because of adverse economic circumstances. Rotary Club of Erie members believe that financial aid to these young people constitutes a good investment by making them potential assets for the maintenance, growth and health of the community and serves as a strong motivation for their development.
Programs and Services
The Foundation currently awards five $3,000 scholarships to high school seniors who live in the City of Erie. Strong consideration is given to financial need based on family size and income to help with their higher education. Interviews are conducted in the spring and scholarships are awarded in April each year.
