The Rotary Club of Effingham County and Effingham Sunrise Rotary award annual scholarships in the amount of $2,500 to select seniors graduating from the high schools in Effingham County who intend to pursue a post-secondary education. 

The motto of Rotary is “Service Above Self”and it is the belief of Rotary that these students will give back to their communities through their volunteer work as students and eventually as Rotarians.
