MELBOURNE, FLA.—Any resident of Indian River County who is a new first-year student or transfer student and, who is accepted as a full-time undergraduate at Florida Institute of Technology’s Melbourne campus, may apply to the Orchid Island Rotary Club Scholarship Program. Recipients will be guaranteed a minimum scholarship of $10,000 per year. If the student is eligible for a higher merit award, based on grade point average and SAT or ACT score, the student will receive that award.
To be eligible, a student must complete and submit an Orchid Island Rotary Club Scholarship Questionnaire to Florida Tech by Jan. 15.
The Orchid Island Rotary Club is advising Indian River County high schools and Indian River State College about the new scholarship program. Additionally, the Orchid Island Rotary Club will honor scholarship winners and their families at a celebratory luncheon.
