What Is The Morley Scholarship?
The Rotary Foundation’s David and Eleanor Morley Global Grant Scholarship Endowed Fund provides funding to Rotary District 7910 for a scholarship for residents of communities in District 7910 (West Suburban Boston and Central Massachusetts) to conduct studies or research at the graduate level abroad. Because the Morley Scholarship is a Rotary-endowed Global Grant scholarship, it must meet the requirements for The Rotary Foundation’s Global Grants.
The Morley Scholarship was established in 2002 in honor of David M. Morley (1915-1993) and Eleanor L. (Curtis) Morley (1916-2001).  David graduated from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) in 1936, worked for General Electric and retired as manager of its engineering lab. He was an active Rotarian in Laconia, New Hampshire.
