The Rotary Club of Hillsborough today announced the availability of multiple scholarships for resident high school graduates pursuing a post-secondary school education. Scholarships have been awarded to graduating seniors by the Rotary Club of Hillsborough for over a decade.
“We are proud to continue our long tradition of supporting the educational goals of our town’s young adults,” commented Patricia Marciano, President of the Rotary Club of Hillsborough.  “This year, in addition to our traditional scholarships for Hillsborough High School graduating seniors pursuing college and vocational school education, we are introducing a new scholarship this year for a Hillsborough resident who attended a secondary school other than Hillsborough High School.”
The Rotary Club’s Scholarships include four that honor Hillsborough luminaries Dix Skillman, a life-long resident and founding member of the Rotary Club of Belle Meade (now the Rotary Club of Hillsborough), Assemblyman and former Hillsborough Mayor, Peter J. Biondi, Township Committeeman Michael Merdinger and Fred Quick, a lifelong Hillsborough resident, Rotarian, and tireless community servant, who passed away last April. Additionally, there is a scholarship reserved for an HHS student who is a member of Interact, a Rotary sister organization at the high school level. 
HHS students are made aware of all available scholarships, including The Rotary Club of Hillsborough Scholarships, through their guidance counselors. The scholarship application and instructions for a graduating senior who has not attended HHS can be downloaded from this site.
