Helping Westerville kids pay for college since 1964
Since 1964, the Rotary Club of Westerville has awarded more than $500,000 in college scholarships to local high school graduates.
The community tradition began with a single $500 scholarship to one student, to attend nursing school at what then was Otterbein College.
In recent years, the club has awarded three smaller, four-year college scholarships. But 2020 marked the first time going to a single, $10,000 award, making our Rotary Scholarship one of the largest local awards available to Westerville high school grads.
Any student from the community attending Westerville Central, Westerville North, Westerville South or DeSales high schools is eligible to apply.
Applications can be obtained at all Westerville high school guidance offices, or downloaded from the below ‘Scholarships’ link.

The Rotary Club of Westerville, in conjunction with the City of Westerville and in Partnership with Butch Bando’s Fantasy of Lights, will present the Lights of Liberty July 1-5, 2020, at the Westerville Athletic Complex, 325 N. Cleveland Ave. The drive-through digital light show, a patriotic celebration of the Fourth of July holiday, will be a COVID-conscious, drive-through-only event* that will help our service club raise charitable funds. Attendees will tune into a dedicated radio station and drive in their cars through a digital light show synchronized to music. *See COVID note below It will run evenings (approximately 9 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.) Wednesday, July 1 through Sunday, July 5, in the Cleveland Avenue parking lots of the Athletic Complex – directly across the street from the Westerville Community Center.

Special Duty Westerville Police Officers will direct all vehicles exiting the drive-through show to turn south (only) on Cleveland Avenue during the show between approximately 9 p.m. and up until midnight July 1-5.
