The Rotary Club of Hillsborough announced the availability of applications for their annual post-secondary school scholarship program for Hillsborough residents.  Now in its third decade, the program provides qualifying students with a scholarship to help offset the cost of their post-secondary education.
“A post-secondary school education often comes with significant expense,” noted Amrik Sahota, chair of the Rotary Club of Hillsborough Scholarship Committee.  “Over the years, our scholarships have helped lessen that burden for many of Hillsborough’s brightest and most deserving students, who not only excel academically, but put Rotary’s commitment to community service into action in their own lives.”
“Our Rotary Club will provide nine scholarships of $2,000 each to residents of Hillsborough who are pursuing a post-secondary education,” commented Ashley Rose, president of the Rotary Club of Hillsborough.  “All our scholarships consider both a student’s academic performance, as well as their commitment to community service, a hallmark of Rotary’s mission.”
The Rotary Club is offering a total of nine scholarships to students who will attend a four- or two-year college. Seven of the nine scholarships will be awarded to students attending Hillsborough High School (HHS), including one scholarship that is reserved specifically for students with special needs. This scholarship is administered in partnership with the Organization for Autism Research (OAR). Of the remaining two scholarships, one is available to a Hillsborough township student who attends Somerset Vo-Tech School and the other to a township student who attends a high school other than HHS, such as Immaculata High School.
Scholarship applications and deadline information for HHS students, including the OAR/Rotary scholarship, may be obtained from their school counseling department. Scholarship applications and instructions for Vo-Tech and non-HHS graduates may be downloaded directly from the Rotary Club of Hillsborough website,  The non-HHS graduates must submit their applications by March 30, 2023.
