The Southborough Rotary Club has announced a second scholarship for high school students from Southborough.

The winning student will receive $1,000 per year to help attend a 4-year Massachusetts state college or university. Applicants will be judged on academic achievements and public service.

Prior to this, the Rotary could only help one student for four years. Thanks to stepped up fundraising efforts and generous donations, they were able to expand the program. The new scholarship means that they don’t have to wait for their current recipient to graduate in 2020.

Applications are due by April 10th.

Forms are available at the Algonquin Regional High School’s guidance office. But you can also get one by emailing carl.guyer@gmail.com.


Here is the club’s full announcement. It includes information on how you can support the program or become involved with the Southborough Rotary:
