The Rotary Club invites students from six schools to attend club meetings for a month during the school year. (This month the January Student from Messiah is attending in December because of her scheduled travels in January). 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 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.
