The Rotary Scholarship program is an acclaimed cornerstone of the club. Scholarship winners are exceptional students who often are the first in their families to attend college and come from households that earn less than $20,000 per year. Last year, LA5 received over 150 applications from some of the best and brightest minds in Southern California.

The club awarded about $159,000 in new scholarships, to 40 recipients -- amongst the most in the club’s 105-year history, with an additional $72,000 raised for future scholarships at a special luncheon. These leaders will attend Brown University, Princeton, MIT, Harvard, UCLA, U.C. Berkley, Stanford, Wellesley, and many other esteemed institutions.
