The Elizabethtown Rotary Club has a rich history of supporting students and education.  Every year the club provides thousands of dollars for scholarships and loans to train the future leaders of society and  help students achieve their dreams.

The Elizabethtown Rotary Club Student Loan Fund came into existence in 1930, during the Great Depression.  Initially, the fund was largely financed by members kicking in to the "old milk bottle" on their birthdays.  Over the years, the fund has grown thanks to memorial gifts in the names of Rotarians William Barnes, Ira Herr, Russell Hein, and Paul Grubb Sr.  The Fund now has assets of over $100,000 and supports approximately 25 Elizabethtown School District residents yearly.
Elizabethtown High School graduation scholarships were initiated in 1938.  The BAS Scholarship for Elizabethtown College started in 1992.  The first Douglas Pfautz Memorial Scholarship was awarded in 2007.  With these three scholarships, the Elizabethtown Rotary Club has provided over $117,500 in educational awards since their inceptions.
