Scholarships

Helping Westerville kids pay for college since 1964

Since 1964, the Rotary Club of Westerville has awarded more than $500,000 in college scholarships to local high school graduates.

The community tradition began with a single $500 scholarship to one student, to attend nursing school at what then was Otterbein College.

In recent years, the club has awarded three smaller, four-year college scholarships. But 2020 marked the first time going to a single, larger award, making our Rotary Scholarship one of the largest local awards available to Westerville high school grads.

The 2024 scholarship will award $20,000 to one or more students, paid out in two installments to the winners’ college or university.

The Class of 2024 deadline to apply is March 22, 2024.  

Any student from the community attending Westerville Central, Westerville North, Westerville South or DeSales high schools is eligible to apply.

Applications can be obtained at all Westerville high school guidance offices, or downloaded from the link below. The Committee plans to announce its 2024 winner/winners in early May 2023.
