The Rotary Club of Milwaukee (RCM) Scholarship program is based in a holistic approach to serving students who have the motivation and drive to seek higher education. In addition to a financial award, scholarship recipients receive study skills coaching prior to enrollment as well as the support of two mentors throughout their scholarship experience.
RCM mentors give guidance, career and personal advice, and help in navigating the college experience. They are the program’s greatest resource and are committed to building a supportive relationship with their scholars.
The amount of a financial award is determined on an annual basis. With satisfactory academic achievement, scholarships may be continued for RCM Scholars throughout their program of study. To be eligible, students must be Milwaukee residents.
The RCM Scholarship Program is supported by the Scholarship Golf Classic, an annual golf fundraiser. Funds from the Classic are augmented by the Gordon & Elizabeth Smith Scholarship, an endowed fund established in 2012. Read more about the Smith Scholarship.
Rotary Club of Milwaukee Scholarships are awarded to Milwaukee area students during their senior year of high school. Applications are to be submitted prior to your first year of college to the RCM scholarship committee in April of each year. All information submitted will be held in confidence and used solely for the purpose of scholarship administration.
