The Rotary Club of Cary-Grove invites local students pursuing vocational or trade careers and working toward an associate degree, diploma or certificate to apply for $1,500 scholarships. Rotary encourages education and will grant 11 scholarships this spring to students living in Chicago’s north, northwest and many western suburbs.
Career examples are auto mechanics, administrative assistants, heating/ventilating/air conditioning tech., computer tech., paralegal, pharmacy tech., human services, law enforcement, elder care and many other fields.
Candidates must be sponsored by their local Rotary club and show good high school grades in relevant subjects, work experience in their chosen field, volunteer work in their chosen field, good extracurricular activities, character recommendations and more. Rotary clubs will screen applicants and sponsor one or two students to the suburban Rotary selection committee. That committee will interview and screen applicants further to help determine the 11 vocational scholarship winners.
Interested students must submit formal applications to the Rotary Club of Cary-Grove by late March. To learn more or apply, email, or visit our club at one of our weekly meetings. We meet on Thursdays at the Cary Park District, 255 Briargate Road, beginning at 7:30am.
