Rotary Foundation Scholarship
Even though classes may looks different this coming year, we know that college students are eager to return to school!  The Enfield Rotary Memorial Scholarship Foundation, Inc., is offering scholarships to college students from Enfield who will be entering their junior year, senior year, or post-graduate studies.

There is no age limit for applicants. Selection criteria include factors such as financial need, self-help activities, academic achievement and extra-curricular activities.

The 2020 Scholarship Application can be downloaded from the Enfield Rotary Club website at www.enfieldctrotary.org. The link to the main scholarship page is https://www.enfieldctrotary.org/page/scholarships. Application deadline is June 15, 2020. Recipients will be notified in July and the scholarships will be presented at a Rotary luncheon in August.  (Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our plans may look different for the 2020 luncheon.)

Last year, the Scholarship Foundation awarded $13,000 to eleven students.

Rotary Peace Studies Scholarship
The Peace Studies Scholarship is to attend a Conflict Resolution from Religious Traditions course in Jerusalem from December 31, 2018 – January 9, 2019. The English language course is open to Enfield residents enrolled in a minimum of 8 college credits during the 2018-2019 school year, in any undergraduate or graduate school program.
 

The course is administered by the Mitchell Hamline School of Law, and is conducted at Hebrew University in Jerusalem. It concentrates on the three monotheistic religions that originated in the Middle East; their coexistence, political, cultural, legal and religious interactions, dispute resolution, and the peace process.
