District 7910 is pleased to announce that O'Mara Taylor of Wayland is the recipient of the $35,00 2019 David & Eleanor Morley Endowed Global Grant Scholarship.  Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Framingham, O'Mara is a graduate of Vassar College. She plans to spend the 2019-2020 academic year in graduate studies at the Saïd Business School of Oxford University. Her Rotary Area of Focus is Maternal & Child Health

“I am thrilled and very grateful to have been awarded the Morley Endowed Global Grant Scholarship," O'Mara says. "I am eager to begin my studies, and look forward to cultivating a strong relationship with Rotary both here and abroad. Thank you for your generous support!” 

We have no doubt that O'Mara will make a huge impact on the world when she completes her studies.  She will be hosted by a Rotary club in Oxford, England.

The Morley Scholarship is unique to District 7910.  Established in 2002 by a generous WPI graduate and Rotarian, the Scholarship is awarded to qualified candidates residing in one of the 117 cities and towns inside our district. The Scholarship is awarded by the District Rotary Foundation Committee, and the endowment is managed by The Rotary Foundation Permanent Fund.

O'Mara is the seventh recipient of the Morley Scholarship. Generally, the scholarship is awarded every other year, depending on performance of the endowed fund and the qualifications of the applicants.

Our sincerest congratulations and best wishes to O'Mara Taylor!
