The Otto J. Rowen Scholarships are made possible by the Otto J. Rowen trust fund and administered by the Dearborn Rotary Foundation. Mr. Rowen was a former Dearborn teacher, administrator at Woodworth School and Rotarian. The students awarded are the best representatives of each vocational area, are interested in pursuing a career in their chosen vocation, have potential for future success in their field, and are recommended by their vocational instructors.
The Rotary Club of Dearborn through its Foundation states that the scholarship funds may be used for classes, tuition, books, school fees and specialized equipment needed for the related vocational program for each student. The unique aspect of this scholarship/grant is that the student who is not planning to attend college or pursue additional formalized training can use the money for equipment needed in his or her field. Students from the Dearborn School System are eligible.
Teachers in our Career and Technical Education classes will be recommending outstanding senior students this week. Applications and recommendation letters will be due FEBRUARY 4, 2015 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
