Lincoln Rotary Club Scholarship




We believe in the value of education as a way to help people grow and ultimately contribute to society in a positive way. Each year, Lincoln Rotary Club14 awards college scholarships to deserving students to help them attend the college of their choice. Seniors in any of Lincoln’s public or private high schools are eligible to apply with the award based on academic accomplishment in high school and acceptance into a college or university. Each scholarship is renewable for a total of four years should the recipient maintain a 3.0 grade point average (on a 4-point system).
