Seniors from the Door County high schools looking towards a four-year college degree can begin applying for scholarships provided by the Rotary Club of Sturgeon Bay. The scholarships that range from $1,500 to $2,500 have awarded in excess of $20,000 in the past. Jeff Ottum, chair of the Rotary “Service above Self” Scholarship program, says the idea is to have students share an essay on what they are doing to give back to the community
Ottum says, last year, the Sturgeon Bay Rotary Club recognized 16 students with eight receiving scholarship awards. This year’s deadline for submitting applications is Wednesday, March 14. You can find the link to the Door County Scholarship Network with this story online.
