ROTARY CLUB OF CADILLAC
SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
 
 
Each year the Rotary Club of Cadillac awards scholarships to graduating Cadillac High School seniors who exhibit high standards of excellence beyond an outstanding grade point average.  The total amount of funds available for this scholarship program is determined each year by the governing board of the Rotary Club of Cadillac, and the scholarship committee for the Rotary Club of Cadillac then determines the amount of each scholarship and the number of scholarships to be awarded, based on the total amount of funds available.  Typically, the scholarships are awarded in the spring of each year.  For 2019, the total amount of scholarship funds available to be awarded is $5,000.  Last year, we awarded five (5) $1,000 Scholarships.    The attached Scholarship Application Form must be completed by each qualified applicant and returned by the due date.
