The Rotary Club of Joliet is seeking applications from students in the Joliet school district for six $1,000 scholarships. These scholarships may be used for tuition only at any accredited college or university.
The scholarship application includes essay questions about the extracurricular and volunteer activities, college and career goals. In 1989, “Service Above Self” was established as the principal motto of the Rotary International because it best conveys the philosophy of unselfish volunteer service. The student applications will be asked to describe how they incorporate “Service” into their everyday life and why they feel it is important to do so.
Students who attend Joliet Catholic Academy, Joliet Township High School, Central Campus, and Joliet Township High School, West Campus are eligible to apply. Any student wishing to apply for these scholarships should request an application from their school counselor beginning February 22, 2019.
The deadline for submission is Friday March 22, 2019. Completed scholarship applications may be delivered in person to the regular Rotary Club meeting, 12:15 pm on Tuesdays at the Holiday Inn and Suites Joliet-Rock Run Convention Center, 1471 Rock Creek Boulevard, Joliet, Illinois 60431 or they can be mailed to: Rotary Club of Joliet, Attention: Dr. Cheryl McCarthy, Past President/Chairman of the Scholarship Committee, P.O. Box 225, Joliet, IL 60434.
Scholarship recipients will be notified of their selection on April 12, 2019. Scholarship recipients will be honored at the regular luncheon meeting of the Rotary Club of Joliet.
