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 12, 2021.
