This year we have added an additional scholarship for seniors who attend Essex Northshore Agricultural & Technical School and have parent(s) or legal guardian(s) residing in Manchester or Essex, Massachusetts.  This scholarship is given to assist local students in meeting the expenses associated with furthering their education or continuing on in the occupation or field of their technical training.
The Manchester-Essex Rotary Club has been able to distribute $10,000 in scholarships each year for the past several years as a result of successful fundraising efforts through the annual Kentucky Derby Auction or raffle in May and annual golf tournament in October as well as through the generosity of its members and our community. 
Formed in 1905, Rotary International is the world's first service club organization with over 1.2 million members in 34,000 clubs worldwide. The Manchester-Essex club serves the towns of Manchester and Essex, giving life to the Rotary motto, "Service Above Self."
