On Monday, April 29, The Rotary Club of Davenport awarded $56,000 in college scholarships (one $16,000 scholarship and four $10,000 scholarships) to five Davenport High School Students.  Students from Davenport Assumption, Central, North and West were eligible to apply.
The Scholarship Committee is chaired by LaWanda Roudebush.  The Rotary Memorial College Loan and Scholarship fund was established with a $2,500 donation on May 29, 1922, in memory of the 276 men and women of Scott County Iowa that gave their lives during World War I. Along with donations from club members on their birthdays and significant other events, two major donations were received from James and Marguerite Dunn and Walter and Alice Ackerman.
Since its inception in 1922, the Fund has awarded scholarships to 82 students and made loans to over 400 students for a total of over $900,000. Winners are selected based upon GPA, test scores, community service, interview, and recommendations.
