Loveland Rotary Scholarships - General Information for Applicants
Each year the Loveland Rotary Club provides many different scholarships for academic studies as well as vocational education that are open to seniors in the Thompson School District. 
For information and to apply go to The actual applications should be available on Jan. 1st.There are many different scholarships from Rotary and other sources shown on that site and you can apply for as many of them as you would like. (All the scholarships from Rotary are included there.)
Please note that many Loveland Rotary scholarships look at factors well beyond grade point average and academic success, so read about each scholarship to see if it might be a good fit for you. 
Some of the factors that may be considered are:
  • Academic Scholarships – Student grade point average, class ranking, and standardized test scores (ACT and SAT) will all be considered when evaluating these scholarship applicants. In addition, the rigor of each students program will have an influence on the final decision for scholarship. AP and or IB classes will be considered when evaluating rigor.
  • Computer and Technical Education (CTE) Scholarships - These are for what used to be called vocational education, including things like auto services, welding, nursing, etc. If you are interested in a 2 year community college program or other education providers of this type, look into these scholarships. Be sure to note how this education will help you grow and succeed in your future.
  • Financial Need – Both the family income and the ability to finance a student will be components for judging financial need. Factors such as the number of children in the family, the health of the family members, and other family stressors will be factored into a final decision.
  • Community and School Involvement – Rotary is interested in students who are involved in school and community projects. With the Rotary motto of Service Above Self, involvement is an important issue for Rotarians. (Remember to mention your Interact participation.)
  • Leadership – Rotarians desire to help the leaders of tomorrow through the scholarship program. Students need to show that they are developing leadership skills.
  • Positive Rotary Ambassador – Ethical behavior representing Rotary is mandatory. A Rotary scholar must show that they live The Four Way Test and represent the high standards set by Rotary International.
