About the Trenton Rotary Club Lion Woodward Foundation Scholarship
Trenton Rotary established the LION WOODWARD EDUCATIONAL FUND in 1928 as a memorial to assist worthy students in achieving their educational goals. The loan fund was converted to a scholarship 4 years ago; it is now held at the Princeton Area Community Foundation, and overseen by a committee of five current Trenton Rotarians. One scholarship of up to $10,000 is awarded annually to a high school senior from Trenton or greater Mercer/Bucks County high school. The award is paid out in amounts of up to $2,500 per year for up to four years. Applications are due March 1 each year, and a variety of factors are considered as part of the evaluation process, including financial need, academic achievement, exemplary community service, and leadership.
