The Mammoth Lakes Rotary Foundation College Completion Scholarship offers financial assistance and mentoring for eligible graduates of Mammoth High School. Graduating seniors who plan to attend Cerro Coso Community College may apply for this competitive award. The recipient, upon successful graduation from CC and transfer acceptance to a qualified four-year university (any UC or CSU campus and UNR), will receive a $20,000 scholarship paid over two years to assist in their completion of a Bachelor’s degree. The award requires adherence to the Rotary academic and behavior standards and participation in our mentoring program throughout your college career.
To apply, you must complete and submit the standard MHS community scholarship application to the MHS counseling office by April 6, 2018. Rotary is a service organization, dedicated to helping our community and our world. In this spirit, applicants must write an original essay detailing their experience with service to others while completing their high school academics. This essay will be attached to your standardized Mammoth Lakes community scholarship application and turned in to the MHS counseling office by April 6, 2018. The essay prompt for 2018 is “Making a Difference.” Your essay should describe what you think it means to make a difference, and highlight activities you have participated in as a high school student, either in our local community or elsewhere, that have made a difference. You should also describe how you would apply your education to make a difference in the future.
There is no minimum length requirement for this essay; however, no essay should exceed 5 pages, double spaced, size 12 font, 1-inch margins. For more information about the scholarship and mentoring program, or the application/selection process, please contact Luan Mendel, scholarship chair, Rotary Club of Mammoth Lakes at lmendel@gmail.com.
