"Service Above Self"
Rotary Club of York 
Our Rotary Club is proud to sponsor the Literacy Award at Ryerson University's School of Early Childhood Studies in the Faculty of Community Services. The scholarship is awarded to one undergraduate student in the School of Early Childhood Studies, in the full-time or part-time program, who has demonstrated academic excellence and leadership in promoting literacy in the community.
