Rotary scholarship approaching quickly, March 1

The Rotary Club of Bristol wishes to remind graduating high school seniors, school administrators, counselors and families that the application deadline for this year’s Bristol Rotary/Karl Schwartz Scholarship Program is March 1.

The scholarships are among the most significant in the area—each year granting multiple thousands of dollars in funding to numerous students who are planning to attend 4 year colleges and universities beginning in the 2016 academic year. The Bristol Rotary Club manages this program via a bequest from the estate of one-time Bristol Rotarian Karl A. Schwartz.

The awards are presented annually to qualifying students from a number of Bristol area high schools, and the value of this year’s program will represent $42,000 distributed among seven qualifying applicants.

Students and families are urged to contact their school guidance departments for materials, and to obtain specific information concerning the scholarship awards procedures and requirements by visiting the Rotary Club of Bristol website at
