Minot Rotary Club Scholarship Fund

The Rotary Scholarship Foundation Fund was established by the Rotary Club of Minot 38 years ago. The goal of the fund is to provide scholarships to area youth through a permanent endowment fund held at the Minot Area Community Foundation. Scholarship applications are scored based upon participation in school activities, involvement in community service and charitable organizations, employment history and academic achievements. 

Since its inception, the scholarship fund has awarded 805 scholarships totaling $723,000. Students earning scholarships are chosen by members of the Rotary Club of Minot who review and score every application. 

Applicants must be a graduating senior of the current year, be involved in school and community activities, and enroll in a postsecondary school or vocational school following high school graduation. Children of Minot Rotarians are not allowed to participate.

The application form is accessible at the bottom of this page and is to be completed by the student applying for the scholarship. It must then be submitted to the school counselor and principal. The counselor and principal must certify the student application and submit to the address listed below. All applications must be postmarked by March 31, 2022
The application window is now closed for 2022.
