Charles County Rotary Club Scholarships
The projects and programs that our club embarks upon help to improve life in Charles County and other local, national and international communities. Our oldest community service activity is our Scholarship Program which provides funds to our local high school students. This program has been continuous since it was first created in 1980 with the scholarship funds growing every year to reach the current $20,000. Schools included in our program are La Plata, McDonough and Lackey High School. We also provide a trade scholarship to students attending North Point High School. And in 2019, our club is excited to add Thomas Stone High School. We are looking forward to meeting and providing opportunities to all of these students as well.
Each schools' career coordinator will have scholarship applications after February 1st of each year, and provide them to interested and qualified applicants. The due date for each application is normally around April 15th. After careful review of each application, the Rotary Club's scholarship board will call those selected for a final interview, usually during the 2nd week in May. After the final interview, applicants are selected as recipients and their names are announced at the awards ceremony for each school. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our club by email.
