The Rotary Club of the Capital City is pleased to announce that it will again be awarding the Robert N. Styres Scholarship this year. It is given to a Wake County public high school graduate who has been accepted to a four-year college/university or a two-year community college. Please refer to the following link to receive additional information regarding the Robert N. Styres Scholarship: www.raleighrotary.com/new-page-1/
The value of the scholarship is $4,000 award per year, granted $2,000 per semester. The scholarship is renewable, as long as the student is enrolled full-time and is making satisfactory academic progress, not to exceed eight (8) consecutive semesters for a total award of $16,000.
While academic achievement is important, the Scholarship is not necessarily intended for the young man or woman with the highest grade point average. Rather, we try to select a person with good to average grades who is a hard worker and who may have overcome some adversity along the way.
We are seeking one nominated student from each public high school in Wake County. Please complete the following Google Form for consideration for this scholarship:
The selected student will need to complete the application form and a statement for the Rotary Club Scholarship Committee.
Complete the consideration form by Thursday, April 13th.
