College Scholarship Program
Rotary Club of Woodridge
2016 Service Above Self Scholarship Award
The Rotary Club of Woodridge is seeking applicants for its Service Above Self Scholarships. The $2,000 awards recognize exceptional community service performed by graduating high school student(s) pursuing higher education. The scholarships fund advanced education at colleges, trade or technical schools. Eligible applicants include all Village of Woodridge residents as well as non-residents where Woodridge is the primary Rotary Club. Two (2) $2,000 scholarships will be awarded.
The scholarships provide financial support to students who have participated in community service activities and have done so over several years’ time. The Rotary Club is looking for students who have made a difference within their community by enriching the lives of others, especially those in need; applications demonstrating participation in community service activities and volunteer work will carry more weight. While school and church activities are important, volunteerism throughout the community will score higher points in many cases. One exception to this would be a church mission trip to do physical labor for others. Students must maintain a C average or better to be eligible for the award.
Applications are available online at www.woodridgerotary.org, at the Woodridge Public Library, or at the Guidance Counselor’s Offices North and South High Schools, Benet Academy and Montini Catholic High School. Questions may be directed to Roisin Daly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications may be turned in at the Woodridge Library in an envelope labeled "Rotary Scholarship." Deadline for applications is April 5, 2016.
