Rotary Club of Highland Park/Highwood Invites Vocational Career Students
to Apply for $1,500 Scholarships
 
Highland Park, IL (December 15, 2022) – The Rotary Club of Highland Park/Highwood invites local students pursuing vocational or trade careers and working toward an associate degree, diploma or certificate to apply for $1,500 Career and Technical Education scholarships.   Rotary encourages education and will grant 15 scholarships this spring to students living in Chicago’s north, northwest and many western suburbs.
Career examples are auto mechanics, administrative assistants, heating/ventilating/air conditioning tech., computer tech., paralegal, pharmacy tech., human services, law enforcement, elder care and many other fields.
Candidates must be sponsored by their local Rotary club and show good high school grades in relevant subjects, work experience in their chosen field, volunteer work in their chosen field, good extracurricular activities, character recommendations and more.  Rotary clubs will screen applicants and sponsor one or two students each to the suburban Rotary selection committee.  That committee will interview and screen applicants further to help determine the vocational scholarship winners.
Information and the application form are at https://rotary6440.org/sitepage/vocational-service.  Students must submit their application to their local Rotary club by early March.
