Rotary Club of Ponte Vedra Beach establishes $10K UNF scholarship


The Rotary Club of Ponte Vedra Beach’s charitable foundation recently donated $10,000 to the University of North Florida Foundation to establish the “Service Above Self” scholarship.

Named for the motto of Rotary International, the funds will provide a $2,500-a-year scholarship for four years to a full-time junior or senior pursuing a B.A. in political science with a concentration in public administration and public policy. Students who are minoring in public administration may also be eligible, with preference given to a student who has either interned or worked for a nonprofit organization or plans to do so.

The funds for the new scholarship were raised through the Ponte Vedra Beach Rotary Club’s annual Mineral City Celebration. Since its inception, the club has donated more than $1.5 million to local charities and nonprofit organizations.
