Scholarships are available to graduating seniors from the greater Saratoga community who are pursuing four-year college degrees, two-year college degrees, and post-secondary vocational education.
The Saratoga Springs Rotary Club awards roughly one dozen scholarships each year, with a combined worth of more than $50,000. The value of the individual scholarships ranges from $1,500 upward.
