2021 VOCATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
 
DESCRIPTION & REQUIREMENTS
 
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.
