Rotary Youth Leadership Award Scholarship

Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) is a program that originated with Rotary International and encourages servant leadership in youth by recognizing and rewarding deserving 15 to 18-year-old students who are chosen to attend RYLA as an "award" for their past and present leadership and service activities. These select young people attend an all-expenses-paid camp where they are inspired by a diverse group of exceptional speakers, make life-long friends through fellowship activities, and discuss the ethical and social issues of today. These activities are conducted in an atmosphere of trust and respect. The result is that these students return to their schools and communities motivated to take on additional leadership roles and to find additional ways to serve. Open the link below for the more detailed information.

Deadline: Applications will be accepted from April 2 – May 20, 2018, for RYLA 2018
