Pulaski Rotary Club scholarship announcement
The Mount Pulaski Rotary Club is offering Mount Pulaski High
School seniors the opportunity to apply for scholarships through a
Rotary Club program again this year. Applications for the
scholarships may be obtained from the high school
guidance counselor's office.
Scholarship opportunities for young women
This year, the Zonta Club of Lincoln is able to offer two
different scholarships for young women. The first is Zonta
International's Young Women in Public Affairs, and the second is
Zonta Club of Lincoln's Women's Career Scholarship.
The goal of the Young Women in Public Affairs program is to
encourage more young women to participate in public affairs by
recognizing a commitment to the volunteer sector, evidence of
volunteer leadership achievements and a dedication to the
advancement of the status of women.
The YWPA scholarship is open to women of age 16-19 who are living
or studying in a Zonta district at the time the application is
submitted to the district. They DO NOT have to be Logan County
residents to apply.
Note: The application deadline for the local award is Feb.
The second scholarship being offered is the Women's Career
Scholarship, which is open to any Logan County woman. The school to
be attended need not be an Illinois institution; however, it must be
accredited or recognized as an approved program in the field of
study. Top candidates will be selected based on merit, activities,
leadership, honors, awards and need. Awards are offered on a
one-academic-year basis and applicants can reapply year after year.
Students having less than one academic year remaining until
graduation are not eligible for consideration.
Deadline for this scholarship application is March 19.
Applications for both scholarships are available at local high
schools, colleges and university guidance offices.
