Scholarship Committee

The Rochester Scholarship Committee was established in 1996 for the purpose of providing scholarships to worthy Rochester senior high school college bound students.

Residents of Rochester have the opportunity to donate money toward this fund. When residents receive their upcoming real estate tax bill there will be an insert in the envelope for donations. Donations may also be mailed directly to the Rochester Town Hall attn: Scholarship Committee.

This committee has been successful in prior years rewarding at least two scholarships per year. We encourage residents to continue their generosity to allow this endeavor to continue.
