The East Providence/Seekonk Rotary Club has announced the deadline for its annual scholarship program for 2013. The date for applications is March 13.
Each year, the Rotary Club awards $1,000 scholarships four graduating seniors from East Providence High School, East Providence Career & Technical Center, Saint Mary’s Bay View Academy and Seekonk High School.
“The purpose of the scholarship is to reward a local high school student who best exemplifies the criteria of service, leadership and academic achievement,” said Jeanine Achin, 2012-13 president of the East Providence/Seekonk Rotary Club. “Consideration is also given to need, and applicants must be a resident of East Providence or Seekonk.”
Interested students should obtain the official application form from their school guidance counselor.
Applicants should complete the application form and return it to their guidance counselor. The Rotary Club’s Educational Trust Scholarship Committee then selects the recipients from a pool of the most deserving applicants submitted by each school’s guidance department.
Chartered in 1946, the East Providence/Seekonk Rotary Club is a local club of Rotary International, based in Chicago, Ill.
