Applications are now available each spring for the annual Carbondale Rotary Scholarship for graduating seniors looking to continue their education past high school. Areas of emphasis for the Carbondale Rotary Scholarship are financial need, school and community service, and a well-rounded approach to life. Applications will be submitted with an essay addressing Rotary’s 4-Way Test and its motto, “Service Above Self”, and how it applies to the applicant. The 4-way test was in the February Rotary Corner of the Sopris Sun.

Graduating seniors from Basalt, Roaring Fork, Bridges, and Colorado Rocky Mountain School are eligible.

Students can visit their school counselor or see below for applications and details.

Applications are due early April of each year

Dear Schools and Students:

The Scholarship application must be completed and mailed to me at the below address on a due date of early April each year.  The due date will be set in march when applications are available on this web site. Applications that are postmarked later than the due date will not be accepted. Applications must be mailed and cannot be delivered in person. 

A Scholarship Review Committee consisting of Rotary members will review the applications and decide on scholarship winners and amounts. Individuals and schools will be notified of the outcome by early May. Scholarship winners will be invited to a Carbondale Rotary Chapter meeting to accept the scholarship. Unless excused by me in writing, failure to appear to accept the scholarship personally will result in loss of that scholarship.

If these rules seem a bit harsh, it is because the rules set in the past have not been followed, resulting in difficult circumstances for all concerned.

Please check our web site in March 2012 for applications

Scholarship Committee Chair
