The Rotary Club of Big Sky in early March announced its eighth annual scholarship in the amount of $1,000 to be awarded to a Big Sky resident attending college or a vocational post-high school program.

This scholarship is one of several community projects that the Rotary Club of Big Sky funds as a result of its annual Gold Raffle and Auction, held each January.

The criteria for the scholarship will be based on financial need, community service and academic performance. A committee of three Rotarians will review each application, and a winner will be announced by May 31.

The scholarship will be awarded directly to the student upon receipt of a tuition bill. Big Sky residents interested in applying for this scholarship should contact a Rotarian for an application, or send an email to bigskyrotary@gmail.com for more information. The deadline for the application is April 30.
