McMinnville Noon Kiwanis Scholarship 2013
Every year the McMinnville Kiwanis Club rewards multiple students for their hard work in High School with scholarships to help them with the ever-increasing expenses of attending college. The scholarships are given to those students who show their hard work through grades and achievements as well as in participation in activities and community service.
Last year, McMinnville Kiwanis Club awarded $14,000 in scholarships to deserving students. This year, we plan to award $15,000 to graduates that will be attending their first year of college in Fall 2013.
The McMinnville Kiwanis Club also has the option of awarding second-year scholarships to select recipients of the first-year scholarship. If the board determines that second-year scholarships will be awarded, a seperate application process will be conducted.
