The Rotary Club of Karrinyup is proud and excited to announce the launch of the Vocational Service Diversity Scholarship Program. This project enables young scholars the opportunity to engage with and learn from members across the Rotary family in an environment of leadership and community, where everyone can contribute and benefit.  RC Karrinyup is dedicated to ensuring that our potential leaders of tomorrow have access and opportunity for development, regardless of their financial means. For this reason the club has created and now offers the Diversity Scholarship Program.
The intention is to attract and support high calibre students, young professionals, Indigenous Australians and people with disabilities to become involved in our club, be our leaders of tomorrow and to give back to the community.
Scholars will have opportunities to engage with and learn from members across the Rotary community. Some of the competencies, which the scholarship might assist in building include, but are not limited to, self-confidence, interpersonal skills, social and business etiquette, public speaking, organising and running meetings, leadership, project management and teamwork.
President Richard Prunster and Vocational Service Director Kay Durrant were thrilled to have Rotary of Crawley’s President Elect Leah Granucci, a past recipient of a similar scholarship program, along for the recent launch.
Further information and applications form available online.
Rotary Club of Karrinyup President Richard Prunster said “It is very exciting for the Rotary Club of Karrinyup to launch this program with pride.  The program is about creating opportunities and giving young professionals a helping hand at the start of their careers. It also offers opportunities for members to be involved as mentors, to enable and to support our community’s socially conscious future leaders.” – ENDS
