Information & Applications
The Scholarship Program
Needs-based scholarships are awarded to students planning to attend a four-year college.  Below you will find the General Four-Year Scholarship Program link to information and applications.  
A limited number of scholarships are given to seniors at Menlo-Atherton High School who are planning to attend a local community college.  Please contact Menlo-Atherton High School's College Counselors Office for information on this program.
Access to higher education is a cornerstone to success. Recognizing hard work and achievement and supporting students who exhibit these traits is a core mission of the Rotary Club of Menlo Park and its Foundation.  Need-based scholarships are given to acknowledge those who have excelled in academics and school and community service.  During the process of evaluating applicants, consideration will be given to hardships the student and family have endured and the likelihood that earning a scholarship will be a life-changing event for the student and his or her family.  Each year approximately $130,000 in scholarships is awarded to students entering four-year colleges. A number of $1000 grants are also awarded to students entering local community colleges.
