The Rotary Club of Newport has announced that they are offering three scholarships to Rogers High School students graduating this June.
There are two Herbert Epstein / Anthony Spiratos Memorial Scholarships. One scholarship is for $4,000 for one year, and one is for $2,000 for one year. These are awarded to two graduating seniors who are entering an accredited two year or four-year program leading to an academic degree in the arts, sciences, engineering or a specific occupation. The recipient must: show financial need; demonstrate academic success; and exhibit productive use of time outside the classroom in both school and community.
The John Drake Rotary Trust Service Scholarship is $1,000 a year for up to four years. It is awarded to a graduating senior who is entering an accredited two or four-year program leading to a degree in the arts, sciences, engineering, or a specific occupation. The recipient must: exhibit productive use of time outside the classroom (especially in school and community service); and demonstrate academic achievement. Need is not a criterion.
