Five local students will be receiving financial assistance for higher education tuition from the Rochester Rotary and its partners this summer.

The Rochester Rotary sponsors four different scholarships each year, including one with two recipients. The organization is joined in the effort by the Rochester Community Schools Foundation, the Community Foundation of Greater Rochester and the Rochester Kiwanis Club. The groups awarded $15,000 collectively among the students this year.

Students submit applications, essays, high school transcripts and applicant appraisal forms to be considered for the scholarships. They’re also judged on community service efforts, artistic talents, work ethic, leadership and other extracurricular activities.

This year’s scholarship winners are:

  • Paul Harris Scholarship: Eleanor Frazee
  • Paul Harris Scholarship: Megan Lindley
  • Pixley Scholarship: Gabriella Bishop,
  • Sally Case Scholarship: Grace Quintal
  • Rochester Community Scholarship: Jack Harding
