The Ogdensburg Rotary Club is offering several scholarships of at least $500 to service-minded high school seniors who will be attending college this fall.
The scholarship will be awarded to applicants who best fit the Rotary Motto of Service above Self
High school seniors from Heuvelton, Lisbon and Morristown schools and Ogdensburg Free Academy who expect to continue their education in college may apply for this scholarship.
The student must be a permanent resident of St. Lawrence County.
Money for these scholarships comes from the fund-raising activities the Ogdensburg Rotary Club.
With the support of the community we can provide these scholarships to the local high schools and also provide $500 for awards for graduating seniors at Northwest Tech.
Students who file a scholarship application have to include an essay showing how they feel they fit the Rotary motto and what they have done to also give back to their community.
Rotarians want students to become the citizens of their communities who understand how much community service benefits everyone, not only locally, but nationally, and globally.
Applications are available upon request from each high schools guidance counselor or by contacting Fran Abbey at 386-4669 or Dawn Merz at 323-8781.
The deadline to submit applications is May 16.
