Harold Alexander Scholarships

Each year our club provides 6 or more graduating seniors from Petaluma high schools needed scholarship monies. The scholarships are awarded to students who show both academic achievement and service to their community. The Harold Alexander Scholarships also have provided awards to students who may be looking at alternative education in preparation for their career such as in the vocational arts. We have also recognized each year one student who has overcome particular difficulties along the road to their High School graduation.

Scholarships are $1,000 to $3,000

Ritko Vocational and Education Scholarship

This $3,000 scholarship is intended to provide a helping hand for young people who face special challenges in achieving educational or career advancement or in obtaining conventional educational scholarships. Applicants who have suffered financial hardship; difficult family or housing situations; or who have made poor personal decisions but demonstrate they are rehabilitated and willing to accept responsibility for their own future (certification of at least 12 months of recovery must be proven); or who have learning disabilities that may hamper them academically but do not prevent them from pursuing educational and career objectives. The Committee is looking for students who have demonstrated the determination to complete high school with improving grades. Candidates for this Scholarship need not currently be in school and can be beyond High School age.
