Rotary Club of Winters is proud to announce the beneficiaries of the new Rotary College Promise. One of Rotary International’s goals is to support education and literacy for all children and adults.   Congratulations to: Alejandra Hernandez, Evan Judd, Berenice Martinez, Amy Pizano, Briana Simmons, Colby Shaw, Marin Spalding, Soyla Garcia, Nancy Delgado, Aaron Barnett and Diego Solorio. College Promise students applied in fall, were interviewed in February and are now being announced.  All 11 of the students interviewed were selected. However, students must maintain eligibility to receive financial support.   Students, in order to remain eligible:

  • Submitted a complete FAFSA (or Dream Act) application by April of their senior year.
  • Submitted their application to  Solano College during the school year.
To remain eligible after the first semester:
  • Enroll in and complete 12 units in the fall after graduation, and each semester for up to two years.
The Rotary College Promise is possible through an agreement with Solano College and through generous funding by Rotary Club of Winters. Solano Community College will contribute the fees to pay for 12 units plus $200 toward books. Rotary Club of Winters will contribute the Health Fee, Transit Fee, Student Center Fee, Parking Pass fee and match the $200 dollars toward books. The combined contribution is worth $1,016 per semester, and $2,032 annually. Students will be provided a debit card before each semester after meeting ongoing eligibility requirements. Additionally, students must show proof of full-time status, which is no fewer than 12 units per semester. “This program can change lives by supporting students through a certificate program, and Associate’s degree, or for general education courses before transferring to a four year program,” says Rotarian Jesse Loren.]]>
