Irvine Rotary Develops Today's Youth as Service Leaders

Rotary believes in developing the next generation of leaders. Our programs help younger leaders build leadership skills, expand education and learn the value of service.

Volunteer Hours
Lives Changed

The youth focus of Irvine families, businesses, and institutions is a driving force in our community.  Programs of the Rotary Club of Irvine build young leaders, expand access to arts and science education, and provide educational supplies to underserved students.

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
