At the end of each school year, Kiwanis Club of Decatur awards a $1,000 Scholarship to a deserving college-bound senior at Decatur High School, Austin High School and Decatur Hertitage Christian Academy. 

The criteria for these scholarships are:

  • Member of their School's Key Club
  • Member of The National Honor Society
  • Good Character
  • A record of School and Community involvement
  • Demonstrated Financial need for college
  • Interview with Kiwanis' Scholarship Committee

Students interested in being considered for these scholarships should contact their Guidance Counselor and fill out the necessary application. 

The Kiwanis Scholarship Selection Committee will interview each interested student and will award the scholarship to one student from each school at their school's Senior Awards Program.

This process usually begins in April and is awarded in May.
