College Scholarship Program


Rotary Club of Woodridge

2017 Service Above Self Scholarship Award

The Rotary Club of Woodridge is seeking applicants for its Service Above Self Scholarships. The $2,000 awards recognize exceptional community service performed by graduating high school student(s) pursuing higher education. The scholarships fund advanced education at colleges, trade or technical schools. Eligible applicants include all Village of Woodridge residents as well as non-residents where Woodridge is the primary Rotary Club. Two (2) $2,000 scholarships will be awarded.


The scholarships provide financial support to students who have participated in community service activities and have done so over several years’ time.  The Rotary Club is looking for students who have made a difference within their community by enriching the lives of others, especially those in need; applications demonstrating participation in community service activities and volunteer work will carry more weight.  While school and church activities are important, volunteerism throughout the community will score higher points in many cases.  One exception to this would be a church mission trip to do physical labor for others.  Students must maintain a C average or better to be eligible for the award.


Applications are available online at, at the Woodridge Public Library, or at the Guidance Counselor’s Offices North and South High Schools, Benet Academy and Montini Catholic High School. 


Applications shall be returned to Kaleshia “Kay” Page at or printed and returned by mail or in person to Woodridge Public Library, 3 Plaza Drive, Woodridge IL 60517 by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, April 10, 2017. Please mark the envelope as “Rotary Scholarship”. Unfortunately, no exceptions to the deadline can be made.
