Rotary Clubs of Camrose Joint Evening Meeting

Presentation of Camrose Daybreak Rotary Club Scholarships
 
Recently in this last year, we have updated the Rotary Scholarship process. Changing it to an all online application form, using online media to advertise. Applicants were required to be a Camrose city or county resident, currently enrolled or accepted into any form of post secondary schooling. They had to complete an application, outlining their volunteer and leadership experience, relating it to our Rotarian values, provide a current transcript, and a letter of reference.
 
This year we had several outstanding applicants. All the applications were reviewed using a standardized scoring rubric. There are tow scholarships for $750 each.
