Scholarship Application

Scholarships / Awards

The Rotary Club of Victoria-Saanich is committed to making a difference for youth.  One of the ways we do this is to support graduating students who will be attending a post-secondary institution in the fall and who exemplify the values of Rotary. 
We seek to reward students who make a positive difference in our community and show that they can become our future leaders.  Each year we have been awarding scholarships at Esquimalt High School. Starting in 2021 additional scholarships/awards will be available to graduating students throughout Greater Victoria. The values of the awards will be between $1000 and $2000. A total of $14,000 will be awarded in Scholarships.
To qualify, you:
  • must be enrolled at a public secondary school in School District 61 (Greater Victoria), School District 62 (Sooke), School District 63 (Saanich), at a secondary school in School District 93 (French first-language) located within the geographical limits of District 61, 62 or 63) or other secondary school within the geographical limits of District 61, 62 or 63;
