Meet our 2019-20 Scholars!

 

The Rotary Club of Milwaukee (RCM) Scholarship program is based on 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 a mentor 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 aid is determined on an annual basis. Recent awards have ranged from $2,500 and $5,000 per academic year. With satisfactory academic achievement, scholarships may be renewed annually.

 

2020 applications for the RCM Scholarship are to be submitted electronically by March 1, 2020. Click here to access the online application.
