The Castle Rock Rotary Club | Arthur N. Brewer Scholarship

The Arthur N. Brewer Castle Rock Rotary Scholarship is named for the Club's Charter President and long time advocate of Rotary, young people and education. Mr. Brewer was a retired teacher, former school board member, avid outdoorsman and dedicated Rotarian.

The scholarship program was initiated by Castle Rock Rotary in 1990 when the Club decided to offer a scholarship to a deserving high school graduating senior from a Douglas County school exemplifying the object of Rotary ("To encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise"). The Club was and continues to be especially anxious to recognize and reward students who have demonstrated committed service to their community and a plan to use their career as an avenue of continued service to the community.

The first scholarship was $500.00 and was awarded in 1991 to a student seeking a bachelor's degree at a four-year college. The focus of the award has been narrowed to Castle View High School students and the club is currently providing up to five one-time scholarships totaling $5000 for four-year colleges or vocational/trade schools.  

The application forms and process are designed for the award committee to learn how the applicant has and will promote the ideals and Objectives of Rotary with the education being sought. At least one scholarship will be awarded based on financial need.  Although high academic achievement is not a determining factor, the student's cumulative grade point average must be 2.5 or higher.  

At least two letters of reference are requested, along with a letter of introduction (1 page maximum) to identify yourself and the completed application are required for consideration.

The Scholarship Application is available by contacting our club via email:

The Object of Rotary:

Rotary is an international organization of local community service clubs. The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise.  Rotarians around the world serve their community by using their work-related talents to help others – both in the local community and internationally.  Rotary Club of Castle Rock, for example, has raised and continues to raise money for the Women’s Crisis Center, Senior Center, Help & Hope Center, Wellspring Communities, other local non-profits, and impoverished communities in other parts of the world including new wells for clean drinking water.  The Rotary Club of Castle Rock sponsors Rotary’s Youth Exchange Program, CHVS Scholarships, CVHS Student of the Month Recognition, and Eagle Scout Projects, and the Club is supporting the new Wellspring Garden.  Rotarians are committed to high ethical standards.  Their commitment is reflected in the Rotary’s Four Way Test.  
Rotarians promote the Object of Rotary by applying the Four Way Test to what we think, say and do:
  1. Is it the Truth?
  2. Is it fair to all concerned?
  3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
  4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
