The 2023 Scholarship Application will be available in January

Each year, the Rotary Club of Tacoma # 8 awards college and technical school scholarships to seniors graduating from Tacoma high schools.  Three candidates may be submitted by counselors from each high school to be considered for two-year or four-year awards. Please submit at least one candidate for each category. 

The Rotary Scholarship Committee selects two scholarship recipients from each school after reviewing their applications and interviewing the students. The scholarships are made payable directly to the institution the student has chosen to attend and can be used for tuition and/or academic supplies.

The committee strives to award the scholarships to students with financial need, where assistance might make a difference in the student’s decision whether or not to attend college.

Each student is required to complete the scholarship application as well as provide an unofficial transcript of their high school grades to date.  Scholarship applications must be submitted through the counseling office at each high school and must be signed by the counselor.  The list below shows the schools and counselors that we work with:
