UKC Rotary Scholarship Applicants who meet all requirements must attend a UKC Rotary Club meeting either virtually or in person by March 20, 2024.  Meetings are Wednesday at 7:00 AM.  Please contact us to schedule your attendance and for any assistance with transportation.  You will be notified of the location when you schedule your visit.  Attendance is designed to give Rotary members a chance to meet you and have an informal time to talk.  At the meeting, you will have an opportunity to give the Club a brief overview of what your plans, objectives, and goals are for the future. Since Rotary is primarily a service organization you may also speak about what service work (formal and/or informal) you have been a part of for the past four years.  Not everyone can attend on the same day so schedule your attendance as soon as you decide to become an applicant.
