Rotary Club Of The Boundary
Onceagain this year, The Rotary Club of the Boundary, is offering two vocational scholarships in this area. These scholarships, are offered to a graduating student who wishes to further their education in the vocation that they have chosen to follow. These vocations are those of technical nature (i.e. agriculture, carpentry, mechanic, refrigeration, hospitality, etc.), and are geared to college career oriented programs, rather than university. One is issued to a Canadian student residing in the Boundary area including Ayers Cliff, Hatley and North Hatley and immediate area, and the other to a U.S. student residing in Derby Line, Derby, Holland, Morgan, Charleston and immediate area.
The Club has named these scholarships “The Paul Lucas Vocational Scholarships”, in memory of Paul, who was instrumental in suggesting these awards.
These awards will be based on the applicants’ financial need, scholastic record, demonstrating dedication and desire to pursue a vocational career, and the recommendations of the school guidance personnel and teachers. Each chosen recipient will be awarded $750.00, payable to the educational institution from which they have been accepted. The Rotary Club of the Boundary, will make the final selection from the applications received, and students will be guests of the club to receive their award.
Applicants may make formal application by submitting a letter, outlining the career goals, and a description of community activities they have been involved in and why Rotary should support their continuing studies. This letter must be accompanied by an abstract of their grades, as well as a letters of recommendation from their teacher, and a character letter from a member of their community.
