Vo­ca­tional Schol­ar­ships

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Made­line Mul­hol­land Stanstead

The Ro­tary Club of the Boundary of­fers two, yearly vo­ca­tional schol­ar­ships, avail­able to lo­cal grad­u­ates en­ter­ing post sec­ondary vo­ca­tional stud­ies. These stud­ies will be of a tech­ni­cal na­ture, such as agri­cul­ture, car­pen­try, and me­chan­ics, etc. and the schol­ar­ships are not in­tended for univer­sity level stud­ies. The Ro­tary Club of the Boundary serves both sides of the bor­der, hence the two schol­ar­ships will be awarded to one stu­dent from Canada and one from Ver­mont. The ter­ri­to­ries of el­i­gi­bil­ity for Cana­dian stu­dents are lo­cal and in­clude Stanstead, Ayer’s Cliff, Hat­ley and North Hat­ley.

These schol­ar­ships have re­cently been named in mem­ory of Mr. Paul Lu­cas, as he was in­stru­men­tal in their con­cep­tion. The funds will be awarded on a merit ba­sis, which will be as­sessed based on a stu­dent’s scholas­tic record, ded­i­ca­tion to pur­su­ing their field of study, and rec­om­men­da­tions of the school’s guid­ance coun­sel­lor and teach­ers. Each schol­ar­ship is in the amount of $750.00 and will be paid di­rectly to the in­sti­tu­tion of study to which the stu­dent has been ac­cepted. The Ro­tary of the Boundary will choose the win­ners based on the ap­pli­ca­tions re­ceived and win­ners will be in­vited as guests of the Club to re­ceive their awards.

Ap­pli­cants who wish to ap­ply for the schol­ar­ships must do so through sub­mis­sion of a for­mal letter out­lin­ing their study goals and a de­scrip­tion of com­mu­nity ac­tiv­i­ties in which they have been in­volved. Stu­dents are also asked to in­di­cate why they be­lieve the Ro­tary Club should sup­port their con­tin­u­ing stud­ies. Ac­com­pa­ny­ing the letter should be a tran­script of the stu­dent’s grades and two let­ters of rec­om­men­da­tion, one from their teacher and an­other from a mem­ber of the com­mu­nity. Let­ters are to be mailed to the at­ten­tion of Mr. Al­lan G. Smith, Ro­tary Club of the Boundary, 7 Ste­wart Street, Stanstead, QC, J0B 3E5. All ap­pli­ca­tions must be re­ceived no later than June 30, 2011. For ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion in­ter­ested par­ties may con­tact the Ro­tary Club via their web­site at www.bound­ary­ro­taryclub. org
