Scholarships

Since 1985, the Swansboro Rotary Club has awarded over $820,000 in scholarships to 276 students from area high schools.  This year, Swansboro Rotary is accepting college scholarship applications from graduating seniors from both Croatan and Swansboro High Schools.

Eight scholarships in the amount of $4,000 each ($1,000 annually) will be awarded based on financial need, academic achievement, and extracurricular activities.  Applications are available from guidance counselors at both schools. The deadline date for scholarship applications is available at the guidance counselor’s office. All winners will be notified by the beginning of May.
