Tahoe-Douglas Rotary offering scholarships

The Tahoe-Douglas Rotary Club is encouraging local qualifying students to apply for a Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholarship. The scholarship, designed to support the Rotary Foundation mission of furthering international understanding and world peace, will be awarded for study abroad during the 2002-03 college of university school year.

Applicants must have at least two years of university of college course work completed by the time the scholarship begins and must have potential as a good will ambassador. Dan Spano, president of the Tahoe-Douglas Rotary Club, said, “We’re looking for a candidate with strong leadership skills and well defined goals, who is involved in a humanitarian field of study that complements Rotary services.”

Rotary service interests includes AIDS awareness and education, alleviating hunger and starvation, environmental awareness and protection, children at risk, concern for the aging, functional literacy and Polio Plus..

The Ambassadorial Scholarship Program is one of the many local and international humanitarian efforts to which the Tahoe-Douglas Rotary Club provides funding. The scholarship maximum of $25,000 is provided to cover required fees for a normal course load, one month of intensive language training if necessary, round-trip transportation plus reasonable room and board and some educational supplies. Applicants may select the college or university of their choice, with approval from the Rotary Foundation, as long as the country selected has Rotary clubs. Qualified students may call Dan Spano at (775) 588-5889 for more details and an application.

Three total scholarships will be awarded for the Tahoe-Douglas Rotary Club region, which includes Rotary clubs from Truckee, Auburn, Quincy, Grass Valley and Reno.
