28 St. Louis-Area Students Receive Young Citizens Scholarships to Attend Webster
November 06, 2019
Webster University and the Rotary Club of St. Louis recently awarded college scholarships to 28 students in the St. Louis area. The 28 students were all awarded $5,000 scholarships renewable for three years for a total of $20,000 if they apply and are accepted to Webster University.
The purpose of the Young Citizenship Award is to find and reward those students who work hard at being good citizens at home, at school, and in the community.
The program is designed to recognize and encourage youngsters who are honest, hard-working, helpful, and fair. In practice, the Young Citizenship Award provides classroom teachers with a useful tool to further motivate promising students. It also gives exchanges to an enjoyable opportunity to supply the encouragement that can be so vitally important in shaping the characters of youngsters at an impressionable time in their lives.
" We have expanded this tradition to include the young citizen awardees with their own potential educational journey," said Beth Russell, assistant provost for Graduate Studies and president of the Rotary Club of St. Louis. "Working with our young citizens has not only enriched us as an institution but has also brought forth diversity and inclusion dialogues that inspire deeper conversation and opportunities to learn from each other in a global academic environment."
