Scholarship applications are due to the Exeter High School Guidance Office each Spring.

Scholarship winners will be awarded at the Exeter High school awards night.  

Each year the Rotary Club of Portsmouth seeks scholarship applications from high school seniors scheduled tograduate this spring and will be begin study at a post-secondary institution (either a 2 or 4 year program).  Applicants must also reside in the Exeter School District.  Children and Grandchildren of Exeter Rotary members are not eligible for this scholarship.

These scholarships are one-time, non-recurring awards that range from $1,500 to $5,000 and are made on a non- discriminatory basis to individuals who demonstrate the same sense of community, volunteerism and love of athletics that Stephen possessed.  A family’s financial need may also be taken into consideration by the reviewing committee. Individuals with special learning circumstances, who have worked to overcome these circumstances, are encouraged to apply for the scholarship.

Applicants are encouraged to work with their high school guidance counselor and/or college advisor when submitting the application.  Once all applications have been received, the Rotary Scholarship Committee will select a pool of finalists to be interviewed individually in May. Recipients of the award are notified approximately four weeks after the application deadline.  The Scholarships are awarded to the students during the annual Exeter High School Scholarship Awards Night Ceremony in June.
