What We Look for in Applicants
Applications for the 13 scholarships awarded each year are evaluated by Sunrise Rotary volunteers.  Selection criteria include GPA, school activities, community service/volunteer   activities, and the responses to the following six questions: (1) What is Rotary International and what activities in the community do they do? (2) Why should this scholarship be awarded to you? (3) What are your career goals? (4) Based on your career goals, who or what has been the most influential helping you make those decisions and why? (5) Who would you choose as the person who has had the most positive influence on the 20th century and thus far into the 21st century?  Please state your reasons (6) As you prepare to leave high school, enter college or technical school, and then begin your career, what do you feel you will need to lead a productive and balanced life?
