Rotary Club of Woodstock
William “Bill” Frejd, a founding member of the Rotary Club of Woodstock, was a machinist by trade, and the owner of R&B Metal Products.   Bill believed that skills learned in the different vocational trades were of fundamental benefit to the society, and an essential part of a productive community.  It was his wish to support scholarships for life-long vocational trades.
The vocational scholarship is to provide educational opportunities for men and women who are preparing for careers that require LESS THAN A FOUR-YEAR DEGREE (Associate Degree, Diploma or Certificate) in order to enter into those careers and become successful and productive. The Rotary Club of Woodstock will be offering local scholarship(s) for a possible minimum award of $500.00 and maximum award of $1,500.00.  
Additionally, one application will be sponsored by the Rotary Club of Woodstock to advance to the Rotary District 6440 office for the possibility of an additional scholarship award of $1,500. 
Scholarships will be awarded to full-time students enrolled in a vocational degree or certificate program at an accredited school. This award will be used for tuition only, NOT for fees, books, tools, supplies, food, travel or personal expense.  The duration of the scholarship will be one year and all funds from the scholarship will be paid directly to the institution they choose to attend.
Students must claim funds for the fall, spring or summer semester(s) in the year they won.  Students are to submit enrollment notification and tuition bill immediately after registration.  
To be eligible, a student must live within Woodstock Community School District #200 and be a senior at: 1) Woodstock High School; 2) Woodstock North High School; 3) Marian Central Catholic High School; OR 4) be Home Schooled, and receive their Diploma on the scheduled commencement and/or graduation date for the 2020-21 academic year.  Applications must include two (2) letters of reference and a copy of the applicant’s transcript of high school and/or community college grades (if applicable) in order to qualify.  Exclusion of these items will result in a denial of the application.
Applications must be received by The Rotary Club of Woodstock (Noon) on/before Friday, March 5, 2021, by 5:00 p.m., Chicago Time.
Applications are to be delivered via email only to: PGK@PeterKnapp.com and copy to MarleneFrisbie@gmail.com

The support of our community is awesome!  During this very unusual year, we were able to deliver food baskets and toys to 1100 families.  The whole process was different this year with the COVID requirements.  We asked for and received support from the community for the the deliveries.  There were over 400 cars that participated in the deliveries with only two per car, that means many came multiple times.

Thank you to all the volunteers to help make the season brighter for the recipients!!!
