Oswego Rotary Club offers four scholarships and one award for OCSD seniors

OSWEGO — The Oswego Rotary Club will offer four scholarships and one award for students graduating from the Oswego City School District this year.

Applications are available electronically from the high school website or may be requested from Vernon@Tryon.US, or by calling 315-343-9692. Completed applications must be postmarked by Friday, April 9.

The college scholarships are each $2,000 and will be paid in two checks upon completion of full-time study in the first and third semesters of college. The principal criterion for the scholarships is need for financial assistance in meeting college expenses, but consideration will also be given to high school academic record, school activities, community activities, academic honors and awards, quality of a written essay, and likelihood of success in college.

The Ruth N. Mulford Career and Technical Education Award of $1,000 is to recognize the accomplishments of a graduating high school senior of the Oswego City School District who will have completed by the time of graduation a career and technical education program at Oswego County Center for Instruction, Technology and Innovation (CiTi) preparing for gainful employment.

Applicable programs are advanced metal manufacturing, auto body repair, auto technology, computer coding (CISCO), construction technology, cosmetology, culinary arts, digital media, heavy equipment repair and operation, industrial electrical technology, nursing assistant, outdoor power equipment technology, public safety and justice, and welding technology.

It is anticipated that the award would be used for some work-related expense such at tools, uniforms, further education, and the like. The award is given to affirm Rotary’s appreciation of the dignity of all useful work and respect for the people engaged in all productive occupations.
