Now accepting applications for Himmel Scholarships

The fall semester is under way, and the Kiwanis International Foundation is excited to announce a scholarship opportunity for young leaders through the Harry S. Himmel Scholarship program.

Harry Himmel joined Kiwanis in 1928 and was the first member of the Englewood Kiwanis Club in Chicago, Illinois. He served as governor of the Illinois Eastern-Iowa Kiwanis District and was elected as trustee of Kiwanis International. Later, he served as president of the Kiwanis International Foundation for 10 years. Harry was known for his extensive involvement in his community and charitable causes. His dedication to Kiwanis and serving others made an impact on many individuals.

In the spirit of his devotion to service and leadership in the community, Himmel established a scholarship fund to benefit Key Club International members who devote themselves to serving their own communities and the world. This scholarship remains in his memory to help young people achieve their goals.

The Harry S. Himmel Scholarship program offers one US$500 scholarship opportunity to a Key Club member. Download the Key Club application and instructions here. Scholarship applications must be postmarked by October 15, 2014, for consideration. Digital submissions are encouraged but must contain original signatures; applications can be submitted to scholarships@kiwanis.org.

Please contact the Kiwanis International Foundation at scholarships@kiwanis.org with any questions.
