Student Scholarships


Attention Strath Haven High School Students:


On behalf of Swarthmore Rotary and the Swarthmore Women’s Club, we invite you to apply for a college scholarship. Two $3,000 scholarships will be awarded.

Rotary is an international organization with the mission of providing service to others. Rotary is not affiliated with any other organization, such as religious, political, or business groups. Swarthmore Women’s Club is a disbanded women’s social club that is using the balance of its assets as a scholarship fund.

Please submit your application by April 1. The scholarship check will be made out to you after you provide proof of enrollment at a college or technical school.

Please complete the application form by clicking on the button below. In addition, please submit an essay on the following topic:

Rotary’s primary goal is service to the community, whether local or global. Please describe how you have served the community while in high school and how you hope to serve the community in the future.

Limit your essay to no more than one page using standard text and margin size.

Please provide a copy of your transcripts (unofficial copy sufficient) and your Activity Roster.  Note that grades are not a significant factor in the award of the scholarship.

If you have any questions, please contact Richard Shimko, shimko99 at or 610-544-8981.

Email your application form, essay, Transcrips, and Activity Roster to shimko99 at
