Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
There are 33,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto Service Above Self, Rotary's main objective is service - in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.
The Scholarship in Literacy Education at the University of Wyoming College of Education has been established by Rotary District 5440. This district includes clubs in Wyoming, Northern Colorado, Nebraska and Idaho.
The purpose of this scholarship is to support current educators in District 5440 who work directly with students in literacy education (grades 6 through 12) who wish to increase their teaching competency though additional educational opportunities. Funds can also be used to attend UW and/or UWCC Literacy Education symposiums and conferences.
