For more than 90 years  the Damariscotta-Newcastle Rotary Scholarship program has supported educational scholarships to deserving local students who plan to study for an accredited college degree, or certification-oriented post-high school education.

The scholarships are competitive, and members of the Rotary Scholarship committee review applications through a rigorous and equitable process. Funding is determined on an annual basis, subject to availability of funds, and is at the discretion of the club. These scholarships provide financial assistance to successful applicants to help defray educational costs during the student’s first semester.

Applications are due by April 6th 2018.  Detailed information about the program, including requirements and application form are available on the club’s website (see links for Talking Points and Applications)  or from local school counseling offices.
