Mt. Pleasant Area Community Foundation

For good. For ever.

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for all citizens of Isabella County, now and for generations to come, by attracting and holding permanent endowed funds from a wide range of donors, addressing needs through grant making and providing leadership on key community issues.

Rotary Scholarship Fund

The Rotary Club of Mt. Pleasant established a scholarship fund in 1998 to assist local students pursuing higher education. The high school seniors selected to receive the Rotary Scholarships each year have shown their willingness to serve through their activities in school, as well as in their community.

The Rotary Club of Mt. Pleasant was established on May 6, 1925. This friendly group of local business and professional leaders meets weekly to exchange ideas, build relationships, and take action. Committed to "Service Above Self," this dedicated group of individuals promotes service in our local and international communities, as well as service through worthy vocations. More than sixty members comprise the Club today, and outreach includes young leaders at Central Michigan University (Rotaract), Mt. Pleasant High School (Interact), and West Intermediate (Interact).

Scholarship Eligibility Criteria:

  • Demonstrate academic ability with a minimum 2.8 - 3.3 grade point average.

  • Exhibit outstanding attitude toward school and community.

  • Be a graduating senior from a Mt. Pleasant High School, Sacred Heart Academy or Beal City High School.
