HILLSBOROUGH, NJ - The Rotary Club of Hillsborough is sponsoring multiple scholarships for high school students who are residents of the township planing to pursue a post-secondary school education.

Scholarships have been awarded to graduating seniors by the Rotary Club of Hillsborough for over a decade.

“We are proud to continue our long tradition of supporting the educational goals of our town’s young adults,” said Patricia Marciano, president of the Rotary Club of Hillsborough. “This year, in addition to our traditional scholarships for Hillsborough High School graduating seniors pursuing college and vocational school education, we are introducing a new scholarship for a Hillsborough resident who attended a secondary school other than Hillsborough High School.”

The Rotary Club’s scholarships now include four that honor distinguished Hillsborough residents: Dix Skillman, a life-long resident and founding member of the Rotary Club of Belle Meade (now the Rotary Club of Hillsborough), Assemblyman and former Hillsborough Mayor, Peter J. Biondi, Township Committeeman Michael Merdinger and beginning this year, Fred Quick, a lifelong Hillsborough resident, Rotarian, and tireless community servant, who passed away last April.

Additionally, there is a scholarship reserved for an HHS student who is a member of Interact, a Rotary sister service organization at the high school level.

HHS students are made aware of all available scholarships, including The Rotary Club of Hillsborough Scholarships, through their guidance counselors. The scholarship application and instructions for a graduating senior who has not attended HHS can be found on the Club’s website

The Rotary Club of Hillsborough hs 40 active members from Hillsborough and surrounding communities. Members include business and professional leaders who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.  All funds raised by The Rotary Club of Hillsborough are used to support a wide variety of community service organizations and projects.

The Rotary Club of Hillsborough meets on Wednesday, at 6:15 pm, at The Landing Restaurant in Hillsborough.
