Scholarships & Student Loans

The Paterson Rotary Club offers local students financial assistance through scholarships and student loans. (*Student Loans are awarded only to qualifying students who have a connection to a Paterson Rotarian)

The William Hannah Scholarship Fund
William Hannah, a Paterson Rotarian, was always thinking of and supporting Paterson's youth and even in his death, he never forgot the children of Paterson. Each year, the Paterson Rotary Club, with the help of The Boys and Girls Club of Paterson, administers the William Hannah Scholarship. The application process is extensive, requiring school transcripts, an essay, letters of recommendation, and proof of acceptance to secondary institutions. Each year, the William Hannah Memorial Scholarship Fund awards approximately $13,000 in scholarships.

Student Loan
The Paterson Rotary Club does have a student loan fund, which is currently accepting loan applicants, who have a connection to a member of the Paterson Rotary Club.  Graduates begin to pay back their Rotary student loan, with interest, 6 months from the time they leave or graduate school.

To request information about any of our scholarships or our loan program, please visit our CONTACT PAGE, and send a request. Someone will reach out to you shortly with more information.
