Derby-Shelton Rotary Scholarship Program


The Derby/Shelton Rotary Club offers a very extensive scholarship program for students of Derby and Shelton High Schools. Complete information on each of the scholarships is presented below. This year marks a change from previous years in the naming of the scholarships as you can see below.

Please note these scholarships are paid to the College at the start of the second semester unless otherwise noted

Funds for this worthwhile project are derived from an endowment fund built through the club’s annual fundraising auction. Scholarship applications are made available from the Guidance Departments at the respective schools early in the year.
