MEDINA – The Medina Rotary Club is accepting applications up until Aug. 1 for a scholarship that has been increased from $500 to $2,500. That money could go to one person or be split up among more than one depending on the applications, said Rotary Club President Ben McPherson.

Students who just graduated from Medina in the Class of 2022 are encouraged to apply. This scholarship is not solely based on academic achievement but more community involvement, character and leadership throughout their years in high school, the club said.

The scholarship isn’t limited to those headed to college but for any student looking to go to a post high school, tuition-based educational program – college, trade school, etc.

Outside of filling out the application the only other requirements to be awarded is a presentation to the club on plans after high school, involvements in high school as well as transcript following the student’s first semester.

The application can be found through our Medina Rotary Club Facebook page, the club’s website or through a Rotary Club member.

“This is a great opportunity for any student looking to earn some cash for their future but also develop some real life skills like preparing and delivering a presentation of value,” McPherson said.
