Bristol Rotary Scholarship Fund
The Bristol Rotary Club will give eight new scholarships – with a value of $24,000 each – this spring to area high school seniors heading off to college.
The scholarships, a gift of the late Bristol Rotarian Karl Schwartz, are for $6,000 per school year. They are renewable for four years.
Each year, the club determines the number of new awards and their value.
The Schwartz awards are available to graduating high school seniors living and attending school in Bristol, Plymouth, Plainville, Southington and Burlington. The student must be heading to a four-year college.
Applications are handled professionally through Scholarship America. They are due March 1.
