Noblesville Rotary Club Launches the Noblesville Rotary Scholarship Fund at Ivy Tech Hamilton County

Thanks to the success of the 2021 Noblesville Rotary BrewBQ fundraiser held at Federal Hill Commons, the Noblesville Rotary Club announces the establishment of a Scholarship Fund in partnership with Ivy Tech Hamilton County.

With the funds raised from the 2021 event and the generous support of event Sponsors, the Noblesville Rotary Club is excited to be able to award a full semester of tuition for 5 Ivy Tech students for the fall semester of 2022. The scholarship is open to current undergraduates and high school seniors.

Noblesville Rotary believes that volunteerism and such acts of charity bear enormous potential to initiate change, and students — and all young people — will play an important role in shaping the world’s future. Being able to establish the fund in partnership with Ivy Tech Hamilton County positions the community for growth and economic development by helping students reach their goals locally.

“The ongoing partnership between the Noblesville Rotary Club and Ivy Tech Hamilton County is only solidified by the formal establishment of the fund,” said Carrie Dixon, President of the Noblesville Rotary Club. “We hope that our event Sponsors, Partners and Vendors will take pride in knowing they are contributing to the betterment and advancement of our community through support of this scholarship fund. Students who pursue degrees at Ivy Tech do not have as much access to scholarships as those who attend traditional four year colleges. Our goal is to put the same importance and support into these valuable programs which contribute greatly to the growing need in our communities of graduates with these skill sets”, said Carrie.

To apply, students can contact their High School Guidance Counselor or the Admissions Department at Ivy Tech Hamilton County Campus.

Applications can be accepted now through July 1st, 2022. There will be a scholarship breakfast to recognize winners and their families. The date of the scholarship breakfast is still TBD.
