The Rotary Club of Beaverton supports college and vocational scholarship programs every year. Our financial aid and Club support helps get students into and stay in higher education and training. Scholarship recipients know they have a club of Rotarians who believe in them and are cheering for their long-term success. Over the years, the Rotary Club of Beaverton has given more than $800,000 in scholarships.
Education and literacy are one of the six areas of focus central to Rotary International.
