Attention graduating seniors. The Milford Rotary Club is awarding $10,000 in new scholarships for qualified high school seniors in 2020. In addition, $4,000 will be available for scholarship renewals. “These amounts are due to the generosity of the Rotary Club members and the many sponsors of the Rotary Flags for Heroes fundraiser,” said Jim O’Neill, the Rotary Educational Foundation coordinator. This year the Club will offer four $2,000 Traditional scholarships and a $2,000 Warnell scholarship. Two $2,000 Garbutt Family Trust scholarships will also be available for renewal.

The Traditional scholarships will be awarded on the criteria of the student’s leadership, character, and citizenship as well as academic achievement. The Warnell scholarship will include the requirement that the student is planning a career in science or mathematics.

The Garbutt Family Trust scholarship is renewable for up to four years, but is only offered to new applicants on odd years. A new scholarship will be offered in 2021.

All scholarship applicants must reside in the service area of the Milford Rotary Club which includes all of the Milford School District. Graduating seniors in public, parochial, or private schools or home schooled seniors must submit their applications by April 20, 2020.

The Warnell scholarship is named after Joseph Warnell, a long term Rotarian, chemist, and former business owner. The Garbutt Family Trust scholarship is named for the late long time Rotarian and Milford business owner Thomas Garbutt and his wife and daughter.

Applications are now available on-line at www.milfordrotaryclub.com , from any high school guidance office, or by calling James O’Neill at 422-3207.
