The Rotary Life Scholarship Program



The Rotary Life Scholarship program commenced in 1978 and since then over 450 young people have finished the four-year program.  The Rotary Life Program is a challenging, leadership opportunity combining scholarship, savings, and vocational information activities.  Fourteen eighth grade students are selected annually from all public and private schools in San Bernardino after a series of written and oral competitions to become Rotary Life scholars.  The program runs for the four following years.  In July of each year the selected students place $50.00 in the Rotary Life Fund.  With interest and other considerations from Rotary, a “sharing” scholarship of more than $1500 can be received by each Rotary Life scholar at the end of the senior year.  Each Rotary Life participant completing the program will have the advantage of a learning experience not otherwise obtainable and the prestige obtained by participating successfully in an activity, which requires a commitment to high levels of academic and ethical standards.  Scholars receive the benefit of having members of the Rotary Club of San Bernardino as advisors.
