Circle K- Kiwanis International Foundation District Matching Scholarship

The Kiwanis International Foundation and Circle K International have designed a scholarship program to recognize Circle K members who have excelled in leadership and have provided service to others. Financial need is not a factor in this award. Each winner will receive a one-time US$1,000 award. The Rocky Mountain District is eligible to award one of these scholarships this year based on the amount of clubs participating in the Annual Club Gift Campaign with the Kiwanis International Foundation.
