Heilman Scholarship

The Heilman Scholarship provided by Rotary Club of Point West – Sacramento (PWR) is a special scholarship in memory of Guy Heilman, who was a long time PWR member.  Guy was the “leader of songs” at our club meetings.  These scholarships began from a generous donation from Mr. Heilman’s family.
Under this program scholarships of $1,000 and up will be awarded during 2021.  Those students interested in a trade area (i.e. automotive, construction, dental/medical, police/fire careers, etc.) are encouraged to apply for this application.
