The Brattleboro Rotary Club's Gateway Foundation was established by our club in 1986 to create a local fund to support scholarships awarded annually to Brattleboro area students pursuing college. The Gateway Foundation, which is a nonprofit and tax-exempt organization, awards a total of $20,000-$25,000 in scholarships annually. It is funded by Brattleboro Rotary Club and individual contributions, and is a local chapter of the National Dollars for Scholars program.

Applications are accepted each spring from graduating seniors at the following local high schools: Brattleboro Union, Hinsdale, Leland and Gray, and the Austine School. Criteria for the awards are academic achievement, financial need, and community service, all of which are weighed evenly.

Contributions are always welcome. Gifts in memory of a loved one are encouraged. The world's future depends upon the scholars we help. Please send your contributions to The Gateway Foundation, P.O. Box 6433, Brattleboro, VT 05302.

Please note: The Gateway Foundation is not affiliated with Rotary International's Rotary Foundation. They are two separate entities.
