Rotary District 7870 is pleased to announce the availability of a scholarship in memory of Janice H. McElroy, who served as District 7870 Governor during Rotary Year 2011-2012.  Governor McElroy was instrumental in securing, after the devastation of Hurricane Irene, a Rotary International grant of $412,000 to help southern Vermont to rebuild.

The Janice H. McElroy Memorial Scholarship is made possible due to donations from friends, colleagues, and Rotary Clubs throughout District 7870, covering southern Vermont and southern New Hampshire.

Prior to her death in 2014, Jan McElroy requested that any donations received in her memory be dedicated to establishing a scholarship fund for non-traditional students.

The recipient must be a person who is 21 years of age or older and has completed high school or earned a GED. There must be at least a three-year gap between graduating from high school and full-time college attendance, or a record of part-time college for three years after graduating from high school.

The scholarship funds may be used for expenses at a four-year or a two-year college, or at another type of accredited institution, such as a technical or vocational program. The amount of the scholarship award varies but will be a minimum of $1,000.
