The Rotary Club of Reno provides scholarships from several sources:

  • Our club foundation – the Reno Rotary Foundation
    • Our club may recommend one student each year to the District 5190 Scholarship Committee, which interviews and selects scholarship recipients from clubs around the district
    • Several clubs in Area 8 sponsor Achievement Beyond Obstacles for students who have overcome significant obstacles and are still graduating high school and going on to additional education – college or trade school
  • Rotary Club of Reno International Committee – Purpose and Goals
    • Rotary International says, “We are neighbors, community leaders and global citizens uniting for the common good and taking on some of the world’s most pressing challenges.”
    • Our club’s International Services Committee assists the club in developing programs that promote understanding and good will among Rotarians and among peoples throughout the world. The Rotarian motto, “Service Above Self,” conveys the humanitarian spirit of the organization’s more that 1.2 million members. International service projects promote strong fellowship among Rotarians worldwide while helping the poorest of the poor.

The Rotary Club of Reno is very active in our community.

Current Community Service Committee Projects include:


GOAL: Continue to support Lemelson, a Washoe County Title 1 elementary school

Total funding to $25,000.

The project is designed to promote student achievement and teacher effectiveness through an innovative approach to experimental science education in grades 4-6. Continue to encourage Rotarians to participate by assisting at school events and activities associated with the project. Providing financial support for ESL for the parents of children attending Lemelson. Rotarians may assist with the classes held at the school in the evening. Providing Rotarians weekly to serve as readers for children struggling with reading in grades 3 and 4.

Vocational Service

Vocational Service calls on every Rotarian to work with integrity and contribute their expertise to the problems and needs of society.


To enhance and support our membership; provide mentorship by the experienced members to the less experienced members by engaging in pairing or inter-communication of either same or similar industries and/or size of companies. This process will not only help develop our members’ careers and businesses but also encourage diversity of getting to know more of the members. Helping the members who are retired to remain engaged in the Club and recognizing their service and careers.
