Welcome to the auction of the Rotary Club of Calgary at Stampede Park "Stay in School" charity held in conjunction with our Annual Fundraising Golf Tournament at Cottonwood on July 22, 2021.
The purpose of this auction is to PROVIDE MENTORSHIPS AND SCHOLARSHIPS FOR UNDERPRIVELEGED ACADEMICALLY GIFTED STUDENTS FROM GRADE SIX TO POST-SECONDARY GRADUATION.
Many Calgary students who have the ability to attend a post-secondary school will not get an opportunity to do so because of limited family financial resources. The Rotary Club of Calgary at Stampede Park "Stay-In-School" Scholarship Foundation has been enacted to provide financial assistance and mentorship to selected students.
The program has 3 key objectives:
- Support and motivate students who may not have the financial resources to attend a post-secondary educational institution;
- Encourage students and their parents to investigate opportunities available to them after high school;
- Introduce the work of Rotary to educators, students, parents and to encourage the development of similar programs by other groups
