The Port St. Lucie Rotary Scholarship Program for Class of 2017

Each year, Port St. Lucie Rotary presents scholarships to outstanding high school seniors in St. Lucie County. The scholarships are made possible by fund raisers and  donations. In 2017, Port St. Lucie Rotary will be making 2 scholarship awards to high school seniors who reside in Port St. Lucie and who live the 3 basic principles of Rotary International: service above self (community service is emphasized), dependability, and leadership.

 

Each scholarship is in the amount of $1,500.00.
