Applicants for a Rotary Scholarship must be endorsed by the local club before the application can be forwarded to the district level. Each Rotary Club may nominate two candidates for consideration by the Rotary District selection committee. The number of awards to which each district is entitled is determined by the amount of money contributed by that district during the preceding year. Selection by both the club and the district is based upon the application documents and an interview. The district interview, which is always conducted face-to-face, may be held anytime in the summer or early fall. Applicants are notified of selection by mid-December.
