Southwest Tech Cedar City Rotary Club Scholarship (Awarded Monthly)




 The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

FIRST: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
SECOND: High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
THIRD: The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life;
FOURTH: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

The Rotary channels commitment to service at home and abroad through five Avenues of Service, which are the foundation of club activity.

Club Service focuses on making clubs strong. A thriving club is anchored by strong relationships and an active membership development plan.

Vocational Service calls on every Rotarian to work with integrity and contribute their expertise to the problems and needs of society. Learn more in An Introduction to Vocational Service and the Code of Conduct.

Community Service encourages every Rotarian to find ways to improve the quality of life for people in their communities and to serve the public interest. Learn more in Communities in Action: A Guide to Effective Projects.

International Service exemplifies our global reach in promoting peace and understanding. We support this service avenue by sponsoring or volunteering on international projects, seeking partners abroad, and more.

Youth Service recognizes the importance of empowering youth and young professionals through leadership development programs such as Rotaract, Interact, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, and Rotary Youth Exchange.

Career and Technical Education (CTE) Scholarship

The Career and Technical Education (CTE) Scholarships and Tuition Awards are for outstanding CTE students in Utah.  The scholarships/awards are sponsored by the Utah State Board of Education (USBE) with funds provided by participating higher education institutions.

Visit the Utah State Board of Education Website for more information and to submit your application.  The deadline for the 2020-2021 academic year is January 31, 2020. - Scholarships for Women
Compared to men, women receive fewer grant dollars and rely more on private, unsubsidized loans to pay for college. Given that women still earn 79 cents for every dollar earned by men, a gender gap exists in the effective burden of student loan debt. This can impact long-term financial security for women as they’re left with fewer resources for critical investments such as a home purchase and saving for retirement.  We give information to women on how to find and apply for scholarships, grants, and fellowships, with additional tips on saving money in college. We also list a number of scholarships available specifically to women, organized by common fields of study. Click here for more information.
