Since its earliest years, the Rotary Club of Saint Paul has been committed to serving the youth of the community and encouraged the development of leadership skills among young people. In celebration of the Club's centennial, Saint Paul Rotary will create and support through an endowment a program of four, $5,000-per-year college scholarships that will be awarded to Saint Paul high school graduates who have participated in the club's internationally recognized youth leadership program, Camp RYLA.

The first Century Scholarship will be awarded in the 2010-2011 Rotary year. Finalists for the scholarship were selected from students attending the 2010 Camp RYLA program.
