2017-18 Rotary Scholarship Application

DEADLINE:  Must be postmarked by March 2, 2018.

The Rotary Club of Tacoma # 8 awards several college and technical school scholarships annually in support of seniors graduating from Tacoma high schools.  The Rotary Scholarship Committee selects the scholarship recipients after reviewing their applications and interviewing the students; only 3 nominees per school are considered.  Each school can only apply for two of either scholarship, two technical and one four year or two four year and one technical.  The scholarships are made payable directly to the institution the student has chosen to attend and can be used for tuition and/or academic supplies.

Our goal is to make awards to students with financial need, where assistance might make a difference in the student’s decision whether or not to attend college.

Each student is required to complete the scholarship application as well as provide an unofficial transcript of their high school grades to date.

Scholarship applications must be submitted through the counseling office at each high school and must be signed by the counselor.  The list below shows the schools and counselors that we work with:
