Scholarship Program

The Rotary Club of Ossipee Valley seeks to identify and encourage men and women who embody Rotary’s motto of “Service Above Self” to continue their education in preparation for, or to supplement, a career. For 2019, four scholarships will be awarded for one year each in the amount of $1000 each.
