The Rotary Club of Joliet is now accepting applications for the Dr. Paul Morimoto Scholarship through May 31, 2024.
The Rotary Club of Joliet is awarding three scholarships worth $2,423.00 each to a student from Joliet Junior College, University of St. Francis, and Lewis University. Students must be enrolled in a program related to a Healthcare Field of Study.  The scholarships will be used for tuition only.
The scholarship application includes essay questions about volunteer activities, field of study, and college/career goals. In 1989, “Service Above Self” was established as the principal to of the Rotary International because it best conveys the philosophy of unselfish volunteer service. The student applications will be asked to describe how they incorporate “Service” into their everyday life and how they will apply “Service” to their field of study and future career.
Funds for these scholarships are provided by a generous gift from the family of Dr. Paul Morimoto, a proud Rotarian for 39 years, a beloved Joliet ophthalmologist and winner of the Sehring Medal of Excellence from Silver Cross Hospital in 2013.
Students who attend Joliet Junior College, University of St. Francis, and Lewis University in a Healthcare Field of Study are eligible to apply. The deadline for submission is Monday, June 10, 2024. (The application must be received on or before the submission date.)
It's time to honor the wonderful seniors in our community via the 2023-2024 Rotary Club of Joliet Silver Eagle Award! This award honors seniors from the community for volunteer service and leadership. Please note nominees are not limited to those in social service agencies, rather can be from area hospitals, schools, universities, community organizations, private and public entities etc. You are encouraged to expand your circle of possible nominees.
Please feel free to ask your colleagues and friends for nominations as well, since you do not have to personally know the individual, while the recommendation would then still come from you. The main criteria is that the individual is 65-years-old or older, has often gone "beyond the call of duty," and whose contributions have positively impacted Joliet. Please note while typically the volunteerism takes place in Joliet, we will consider neighboring communities if the efforts still mainly benefit Joliet. Please help spread the word and submit nominations by May 1, 2024.
