Palo Alto Rotary Club Vocational Scholarships
The Rotary Club of Palo Alto Vocational Scholarships for the upcoming school year are intended to provide financial assistance to students who wish to enroll in an accredited vocational program at regional schools, such as the community colleges in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. Eligible students will enroll in a program leading to a certificate or degree in a vocational field. These scholarships are not intended for general academic pursuits, for students intending to transfer to four-year colleges, or for graduate degrees.
Up to 10 scholarships will be awarded in amounts varying from $1,000 to $2,000. The award will be paid to the student upon confirmation of enrollment: it is intended to support the vocational educational goals of the recipient and may be used for tuition or other expenses incurred in pursuit of the educational program.
Eligible applicants include:
- High school seniors who will graduate in June and will enroll in a vocational program in the upcoming fall semester
- Students currently enrolled in an accredited vocational program described above, and continuing in that program in the fall
- Returning students with high school degrees who have been out of school and are returning to pursue a vocational education
All applicants must enroll in no fewer than six units in an accredited career/vocational program in fall and must intend to remain enrolled in six units or more for the full academic year. For more information, please visit our website.
