Rotary District 6440’s 2021 Vocational Scholarship Program Call for Applications


The Vocational Scholarship seeks to provide educational opportunities for men and women in District 6440 who are preparing for careers that do not require a baccalaureate degree. Aid is given to defray costs associated with programs that prepare for immediate entry into a career field (e.g., Associate of Applied Science Degree, Trade School Diploma, Certificate, License).

Approximately ten scholarships in the amount of $1,500 each will be awarded to full-time students enrolled in a vocational program at an accredited school. This award will be used for tuition only. Each club may submit two applicants. Half of the scholarships will be awarded to students attending non-profit educational institutions like Community Colleges.

The duration of the scholarship will be one year. Students must claim funds within 12 months of the award date. Students are to submit enrollment notification and tuition bill immediately after registration. All funds from the scholarship will only be paid directly to the institution they attend. Awards not claimed within 12 months of the award date will be forfeited.

The scholarship eligibility includes: 
1. High School Graduate, GED, or non-traditional student entering a vocational program

2. Be sponsored by a Rotary District 6440 Club 

3. Be accepted at a school of designation

4. Permanent residence (domiciled) or employed in District 6440 (Residing outside District 6440 for educational purposes is not a disqualification.)

Applications must be sent to the Rotary District 6440 Vocational Scholarship Committee by April 9, 2021. Selections will be announced no later than April 30, 2021.
