Scholarship Application Guidelines

The Rotary Club of Derby invites you to apply for one of our $1,000.00 scholarships.  Five scholarships will be awarded in May 2023.  Scholarship awards are open to eligible students who attend Derby High School and/or live in the district and attend another high school or are home schooled.  Scholarship awards are based on academic performance, extracurricular activities and work experience, written statements, and financial need. 

To be eligible for the scholarship you must be graduating this spring and intending to enroll in the freshman class of an institution of higher learning or trade school in any state this coming fall.  The scholarships awarded will be used during the first academic year and are not renewable.

Over the years we have aided in the education of numerous students who have attended such schools as KU, KSU, WSU, Butler Community College, BYU, just to mention a few.

A fillable scholarship application form can be opened at the link below.  Once completed, the application should be given to your school counselor for endorsement.  The Rotary Scholarship Chairman or Designee will pick up applications from the Derby High School Counselor’s office.   As an alternative, applications can be returned electronically to the email address below or mailed.  The application deadline is Wednesday, April 17, 2023.

If you have any questions, please contact me by email.
