The Rotary Service Above Self Vocational/Technical Robert Muckian Scholarships have been awarded for the past 12 years to deserving high school graduating seniors who are planning on attending a two-year accredited technical college. Students who are selected must have a 2.0 GPA, be involved in school extracurricular activities and demonstrate service to others in their community. The application requires a 500-word essay on the topic of “Service Above Self,” which is Rotary International’s motto.
These scholarships range from $500 to $1,000 and are funded by the Rotary Club of Sturgeon Bay Charitable Trust and an endowment from the estate of Rotarian Robert Muckian.
Complete scholarship information and the link to the application can be found at doorcountyscholarships.org. The Muckian Scholarship application can also be found at sturgeonbayrotary.org. A committee of Rotarians will make the final selections. Applications must be submitted by March 15. The awards will be presented at a Rotary luncheon on May 3.
