If you are interested in a Technical Training, those applications are open all year around.  Look for "Technical Training Application" below.   
The money we give to graduating seniors and to the students who are already in college, comes from the Upper Keys Rotary Gigantic Nautical Market that happens at the end of February. Because of the community support and the excellent sponsors, in 2023- 2024 the Upper Keys Rotary Club will provide $200,000 in scholarships to Keys scholars including $40,000 to the Monroe County Take Stock in Children Program and $35,000 to other local programs.
We support students proving themselves in higher education with awards totaling over $100,000 to 42 Upper Keys students attending colleges or universities. They are musicians, nurses, pre-med students, business majors, and a surprising number of engineers. We also offer scholarships for students in Career Technical Education including three Village of Islamorada Firefighters who grew their skills and became Emergency Medical Technicians. (See the Technical Training Application below) 

Applications for the 2024-2025 Upper Keys Rotary Acedemic Scholarship Program will be available in March 2024.  See you then.
THIS MATERIAL IS FOR 2023 and is now out of date.  It will be revised in early 2024.  
-- IF you are graduating from Coral Shores High School in May of 2023, click on and download the "Graduating Student" application file. 
-- IF you attend or plan to attend a College/University in 2022/23 and graduated from CSHS or ICS before 2023, then click on and download the "Returning Student" application file.  
That seems simple, but people get it wrong every year ... don't be THAT person! 
1. The application is a "fillable" PDF. You should download and save it and then use Adobe Acrobat or Acrobat Reader/Acrobat DC to open the
saved file. With either of those tools, you can fill in all the fields. If you find you can NOT type into a form field, you
are probably in your browser's pdf viewer. That will NOT work!
2. You may print this pdf, fill it out by hand, and then scan it back to a pdf.
3. You may import this pdf into Word, complete it, and export it as a pdf.
4. Please NEVER send it to us as an Apple .PAGES file. No Apple .PAGES, .MOV, .FLV, or .HVEC files, please!
5. There is a Financial Sheet in this application. You may wish to print just that page and fill it our by hand or in Word.
CSHS Graduating Students: You MUST go to a SignUpGenius page and schedule a face-to-face interview for the afternoon of May 2 or 3.  You might want to do this fast! 
Returning Students (already in college/university: You will be asked to make a video.  (no interview)  Please save/export the video you create as an mp4 file.  No MOV or FLV files please!  There is a procedure described in the application for uploading your application files, including the .mp4 video file you create.  
All applications are due by midnight April 13...  although they are WELCOME much earlier!
