In honor of the Centennial year of The Rotary Club of Louisville, the organization established a permanent endowment that, when fully funded, will award scholarships to deserving graduates from four selected high schools in the Jefferson County Public School system. Rotary Club of Louisville believes that students are the future leaders of our community. Many students in the JCPS system are extremely gifted and motivated to create a better future, but financial barriers often prevent educational advancement. The Rotary Promise Scholarship helps eligible students bridge that gap. The above information is taken from the Program’s website.
