The Gig Harbor Rotary Foundation has established a scholarship program to assist children from selected high schools who plan to continue education in college or vocational school programs. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.
Scholarship awards range from $500 – $3,000, provided financial need is demonstrated. Potential recipients who demonstrate no need will be eligible to receive a one-time honorarium in the amount of $500.
Awards are not renewable; however, previous award recipients excluding honorariums may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Applicants will be notified in May. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of The Gig Harbor Rotary Foundation. Payments are made in one installment in early August.
Recipients who do not demonstrate financial need as calculated by Scholarship America or whose parents choose not to supply the requested financial information will be eligible to receive a one-time honorarium at the minimum award amount.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of The Gig Harbor Rotary Foundation play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Also as part of your application, one online recommendation must be completed on your behalf by 1:00 p.m. PT on March 5, 2020.
Your application is not complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically.
