Greenville Rotary announces available scholarships for 2023
In light of the destruction and displacement caused by the Dixie Fire, the Rotary Club of Greenville wants more than ever to help students in Indian Valley get the education and training they need to help rebuild and contribute to their community. With that goal in mind, the Club will once again be presenting multiple scholarships in 2023 to any current graduating student who attended any school in Indian Valley, and who plans to pursue an academic or vocational education. Accredited four-year universities or two-year community colleges will qualify, and so will accredited vocational schools where students may pursue such fields as lineman, construction, nursing, welding, culinary arts, etc.
The highest award will be a Distinguished Student Renewable Scholarship for one 2023 graduate in the amount of $1,000 per year for up to four years.
The next level will be a one-year Distinguished Student Scholarships for 2023 graduates in the amount of $500 or $1,000. The club will present as many scholarships at this level as it has funding for.
Finally, the Greenville Rotary Club will present one Alumni Scholarship in the amount of $1,000 to a previous graduate of an Indian Valley high school who is either continuing his or her education or is going back to school to pursue an academic or vocational education. There is no age limit for this scholarship.
These scholarships may be awarded based on need or merit. Students who have a good academic record as well as students who have financial need are encouraged to apply.
