Anchorage Midtown Rotary Club began awarding a $1,000.00 scholarship to a graduate from Alaska High Schools who earned the Eagle Scout rank during the 2021-2022 school year.
Anchorage Midtown Rotary Club wants to continue awarding scholarships in 2023-2024. The club believes these awards recognize and affirm worthy youth by providing funds to help with the financial pressures of advanced education or training. Recipients submit an application together with a 750-1000 word essay on "The Rotary Four Way Test and Its Relationship to the Scout Law."
Recipients are selected by a panel of club members based on the application and the content of the essay.
The Club Treasurer signs all checks for disbursement of grant funds. A separate club member who is in charge of the grant, must sign / approve the voucher authorizing disbursement of funds from the grant. The grant reporting will be done by another Club member who neither authorized disbursement or signed checks disbursing grant funds. A separate ledger will be kept for the District Grant.
