We congratulate the students and their families and wish them the best as they pursue further education.
The Rotary Club invites students from five schools to attend club meetings for a month during the school year. Each month a new group of students is  invited. At the end of the school year, the club awards $2,000 scholarships to a student from each school based on an application which they submit and the attendance and interactions that occur at the meetings. Students who continue their education in Pennsylvania also have an opportunity to receive a $2,000 matching grant from PHEAA (Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency) based on need.
