The Rotary Club of Oxford, in conjunction with the Gundaker Foundation of the Rotary District 7450, recently announced the availability of several graduate grant awards for post-baccalaureate study in any field during the 2014-2015 academic year. Graduate grants range from $1,000 to $3,500.

Candidates may be graduating college seniors, other persons seeking admission to graduate or professional schools for the first time, or those already enrolled in a post-baccalaureate institution. Candidates must plan to enroll full‐time. Candidates must be permanent residents of Rotary District 7450 or be enrolled in a post-graduate institution within the district. The District includes all of Philadelphia County, much of Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery Counties, and part of lower Bucks County. Qualifications for these grants include high academic achievement; a record of leadership in school, community, or other settings; and evidence of involvement in giving service to others. Financial need is also a consideration. Rotarians and members of their immediate families are not eligible for these grants.

Application forms and additional informational may be obtained by email from Charles Vickery at OxfordRotary7450@gmail.com. Completed applications and requests for information can be mailed to Rotary Club of Oxford, P.O. Box 27, Oxford, PA 19363.

Completed applications must be submitted to the local Rotary Club by Jan. 20, 2014. Award announcements are made by May. Grants are paid in the fall, jointly to the recipient and the institution where they are enrolled.
