Minneapolis Rotary College Scholarship
Since 1991, the Minneapolis Rotary Club, one of 34,000 Rotary clubs worldwide, has helped send more than three dozen graduates from Minneapolis Public High Schools to college. The Minneapolis Rotary Scholarship is awarded each year to exceptional 12th grade students chosen from the Minneapolis Public High Schools. Scholarships are $1,000 to $1,125 per year for up to 4 consecutive years, based on satisfactory academic progress. While academic qualifications are a strong criteria for scholarship selection, the students selected for scholarships may not necessarily be at the top in their class, but demonstrate through their actions a commitment to the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self” and show the potential to achieve great things.
In selecting our scholars we are looking for:
- A student who has demonstrated the ability to develop acquaintances with and work well with fellow students of diverse backgrounds.
- A student who has demonstrated a commitment to work toward academic excellence, showing perseverance and high ethical standards in pursuit of that excellence.
- A student who has a personal philosophy of service and has demonstrated that service philosophy through work with fellow students and through activities in the community.
