Rotary Club offers Leaders of Tomorrow scholarships to recent high school grads

 

For the Rotary Club of La Porte, the development of next generation community leadership is essential in making a meaningful impact on the future of our community.  We want to support and foster the desire our young people have to engage and contribute to their community, which is why we are excited to announce that in 2021, we will focus our efforts on preparing tomorrow’s leaders by offering the Rotary Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarship Program.

We are encouraging new graduates from La Porte, South Central, New Prairie and Tri-Township high schools to apply for a Rotary Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarship. Awards will be heavily focused on recognizing and supporting young women and men who demonstrate leadership ability, more so than academic standing alone.

The Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarship is available to TWO candidates who are continuing their education or training for the coming academic year and have a proven track record of contributing to the community, have clear career aspirations, and have demonstrable and/or developing leadership qualities.

The application deadline is Feb. 19, 2021.

The Rotary Leaders of Tomorrow recipient will have a proven track record in making a difference in other people’s lives through exceptional community involvement, demonstrable leadership, and a strong commitment to his or her own professional development and career path.
