Rotary Career Opportunity Award

The award is for graduating students attending a Polytechnic, College, Trade School or University within Alberta. The Award is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Red Deer, and is awarded to 12 students across the City of Red Deer annually. The award is $3,000.

The Rotary Career Opportunity Award is open to anyone attending:

  • Red Deer Public School Division
  • Red Deer Catholic School Division

You will be required to submit the following in this application:

  • Two signed, dated reference letters that include phone numbers
  • Transcript or outline of high school academic results
  • Your parent(s)/legal guardian(s) Notice of Assessment (Please note: you can still apply if you are unable to provide this documentation. You will be required to provide a brief explanation as to why you are unable to provide this documentation).
  • Proof of Enrollment (this can be through a screenshot of a timetable, letter of acceptance, or confirmation of registration. If you are deferring, you will be asked to provide a brief explanation as to why. Exceptions may be made for extenuating circumstances).

Note: As per CRA regulations, our Foundation is not at liberty to disburse the awards directly to recipients. Rather, we release the funds directly to the post-secondary institution, which then credits the student’s tuition account.

Each award has its own criteria, deadline and submitting process. Please read all pieces of the application carefully.
