RYLA College Scholarship
The Rotary Club of Suntree RYLA College Scholarship is the brainchild of Rotary Club of Suntree President Alan Frisher.
Each year, when one more more entries are received, the club awards at least one scholarship of $1,000 to a District 6930 RYLA senior high school student based on a written essay. Mr. Frisher has agreed to fund the scholarship at a rate of $500 per year for at least the next ten years, and the Rotary Club of Suntree Foundation matches his annual contribution.
