Spirit of Service Scholarships

The Lake Wylie Rotary Club Foundation annually awards  “Spirit of Service” Scholarships to recognize high school seniors living in the Clover School District who has demonstrated a heart for community service.  To date, the Foundation has awarded $28,500 to help fund the higher education efforts of some of the most service-minded youth in our community.

For 2019, the top award is currently $2,000.  Adults can nominate graduating seniors who live in the Clover school district, regardless of whether they attend Clover High School, a private school or are homeschooled. The scholarship will be awarded to a student who has exemplified an exceptional commitment to community service through hours of volunteering and dedication to their chosen service organization/purpose. Students should be nominated by an adult (not a peer or family member) who can attest to this student’s heart for service and dedication to their chosen outreach. 

Once all nominations are received, the top applicants will be invited to present a short (5-7 minute) information session at the annual Celebration of Service event about their volunteer work and why they chose to commit their time and talents to these efforts.  A selection committee will then make their choice from these finalists.
