Years of Service
The Rotary Club of Irvine is proud to support our local high school seniors by offering the Service Above Self Scholarship Award. We are business and professional leaders, who volunteer our time and talent to serve the community and the world.
We live our lives with the principle of “Service Above Self” and “The Four Way Test” and want to give youth in our community the opportunity to learn these standards in a way that helps finance collegiate ambitions.
How much is the scholarship? Up to $5,000 is split between winners from local Irvine high schools
Sponsored by service-focused leaders in our community
