Dear WCPHS Scholarship Chairs/Counselors,
The Rotary Club of the Capital City is pleased to announce that it will again be awarding the Robert N. Styres Scholarship this year. The value of the scholarship increased in 2014 and is a $4,000.00 award, granted $2,000.00 per semester. It is given to a Wake County traditional public high school graduate who has been accepted at a four-year college/university or a two-year community college. The scholarship is renewable, as long as the student is enrolled full-time and is making satisfactory academic progress, not to exceed eight (8) consecutive semesters.
While academic achievement is important, the scholarship is not necessarily intended for the young man or woman with the highest grade point average. Rather, we try to select a person with good to average grades who is a hard worker and who may also have overcome some adversity along the way.
We are seeking one nominated student from each traditional public high school in Wake County and would appreciate a nomination from you and your school. Our scholarship committee will review all applicants carefully, conduct interviews with the top three rated nominees and announce the winner on or around May 15, 2015. Please have your school’s chosen nominee complete the application form and return it with a transcript, letter of recommendation, and a letter or statement from the nominee (detailing their desire and need for the scholarship) to Rotary Club of the Capital City c/o Harris Sarratt & Hodges, LLP, 1620 Hillsborough Street, Suite 200, Raleigh, NC 27605, on or before March 31, 2015.
Please contact the club with any questions by submitting the form below.
