North Shore Rotary Club Community Service Scholarship Award

The North Shore Rotary Club annually presents one Staten Island Student a scholarship award based on their Community Service efforts and the student’s intention to continue education after high school graduation.  The continued education may be at public or private trade school, technical or secretarial school, college, university or institute of higher education.  The scholarship will be awarded based upon the quality and extent of community service completed by a student over their high school career. This would include organized volunteer work, as well as group and individual efforts to improve the quality of life in his/her neighborhood, community or borough. Academic achievement is not a primary criterion for this award, although it is expected that the recipient would have maintained grades consistent with the ability to benefit from the scholarship. School based activities should not be included, unless they are community service activities. Please Note: Do not include a high school transcript, as scholastic achievement is not a criterion for this award.  Applicants will be judged ONLY on their Community Service. The scholarship is a two-year renewable award distributed in 2 years.  In 2016, the award was increased to $4,000 per year.  For a maximum of $8,000. Applications due by April 25th, 2017.
