This committee selects new and renewing applicants for student loans (up to $3000 per academic year). They also select the recipients of the “James B. & Carrie B. Bush” Scholarship (1st award in Spring 2001 - $1000 for 4 years), the “Edwin P. Mangold” scholarship and the “Sanford M. Kranich” Scholarship. The committee monitors repayment of outstanding loans and fund growth to insure a continuing source of funds for future loans.
Which high schools do we go to for applications for Scholarships and for Loans?
We send applications for scholarships and for loans to the principal and/or guidance department of every high school in York County, EVERY YEAR!
What is the basis for awarding a York Rotary Scholarship?
The committee will chose from applicants from graduates of York County high schools who are entering a 4 year program for the Bush scholarship or a 2 or 4 year program for the Kranich & Mangold scholarships. The award will be based on high school achievement including grades and activities as well as the student’s need.
What is the basis for awarding loans?
The committee can award loans for a broader range of accredited educational institutions than for scholarships. Successful applicants are chosen on the basis of high school record, financial need, and the likely success of the student in completing the program and paying back the loan.
