Rotary Club taking scholarship applications

The Craig Rotary Club is taking applications for an Ambassadorial Scholarship, which enables a student to study abroad for one year, while supporting the vision of Rotary International to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace.

During the study period, scholars are expected to be outstanding ambassadors of goodwill to the people of the host country through numerous public appearances, according to a news release. After studying, scholars share their experience with people in their home country.

Applicants must have completed at least two years of university or college course work or must have a secondary school education and have been employed in a recognized vocation for at least two years when the scholarship begins. Applicants must be legal residents of Moffat County and have no Rotary familial connections.

The scholarship is for one academic year's study abroad at an institution assigned by The Rotary Foundation Trustees. It provides a flat grant of $23,000. Club-endorsed candidates will compete at the district level, and one scholarship will be awarded.

Completed applications must be submitted to the Craig Rotary Club no later than March 15. Successful applicants at the club level must attend in an interview April 12 and 13 in Cheyenne, Wyo. To request an application and obtain further information, call Bill Muldoon at 970-824-7100.
