Strive - Supporting Youth in School!
Welcome to the STRIVE Program
Strive is a scholarship program that recognizes and rewards students who show significant improvement in overall performance in their senior year of high school. STRIVE challenges students to improve their school performance, gain self confidence, and develop post-secondary goals. 
Students who participate in STRIVE in their senior year are offered an opportunity to "strive" for an entry scholarship to college, university, or a minimum twenty week approved post-secondary training program.
Who are the STRIVE Partners?
The STRIVE Program is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Montague. Thousands of dollars have been awarded to deserving students traditionally missed by post-secondary financial support programs. The Rotary Club works with the staff of MRHS and local business leaders to help promote positive attributes in these students; attributes that will give them the tools to become future leaders in our communities. 
What are the benefits of STRIVE 
The STRIVE Scholarship Program designates 2 scholarships per year valued at $1,500 each! These scholarships go toward tuitiion at UPEI, Holland College, any other similar institution off P.E.I., or for any 20 week or longer approved training course. 
In the past, this program has proven to be a significant benefit to all participants, not just those selected as recipients. The support of the Rotarians who set up the program and of the committee members as friends/mentors is a powerful indicator to the students that the community is genuinely interested in them.
Who is eligible for STRIVE?
Grade 12 students who:
-Meet the requirements for spring graduation
-attend classes regularly
-work and study to the best of their ability
-"strive" toward a positive attitude
What do students have to do?
STRIVE involves a commitment between the student, MRHS, and the Rotary Club of Montague.
-Academic and conselling support is provided by the school
-A $1500 scholarship is provided by the Rotary Club of Montague
-A commitment to attend 4-5 meetins at lunch hour during the school year as well as a growth in work habits and study practices is required by the student
Who determines these scholarships and when?
School counsellors will monitor the progress of the applicants throughout the year. In June, the information is reviewed and the Students Services Department will determine the 2 successful candidates. These candidates will be presented with the STRIVE Scholarships at the graduation ceremonies by a member of the Rotary Club of Montague. Recipients will also be recognized at a luncheon meeting at Rotary.
