About the Scholarships
The largest ongoing service project undertaken by Monroe-Union Breakfast Rotary awards scholarships to local, college-bound high school seniors. Since 1984, the club has given over 340 students a scholarship totaling more than $265,000.
2022, we awarded a total of $ 16,000.
2021, we awarded a total of $ 12,500
2020, we awarded a total of $ 5,000 (despite a pandemic interruption of fundraising activities!)
2019, we awarded a total of $12,000
These unique scholarships recognize students for their service to the community or environment; and do not consider academics, economics, or sports prowess, making them unique. Union County high school seniors, prepare a personal essay about their service to qualify. Club members select one student from each high school in Union County for a scholarship. Chosen students make an oral presentation to our club members. The club's scholarship committee decides the amount of each scholarship. Students receive recognition for their service and scholarships at a banquet with their families and school counselors.
2023 Scholarship Applications are Available
The Monroe Union Breakfast Rotary sponsors the Bob Sabin Memorial Charity Golf Tournament each spring. Please contact us to be notified of next year's tournament details.
Your sponsorship can expand our reach if you believe service-based scholarships help develop tomorrow's community leaders. Together, we can help deserving students achieve their academic and career goals and encourage them to continue community service as future leaders.
