Reaching Out In Our Community

"Hazen Price Rotary Scholarship"

This scholarship is awarded annually to a graduating high school student who excels in a field of science (see eligible fields) as well as contributes to the overall wellness of their high school community or the Town.

The award is named in honour of long time Amherstburg Rotarian, Hazen Price.  Hazen joined the club in November 1948 and has been an active member ever since.  Hazen attended the University of Michigan where he earned his master’s degree in both Chemistry and Botany.  He used these degrees to assist him in operating a farm in Essex County. 

After graduation, Hazen not only worked his farm but was also a supply teacher in Chemistry for General Amherst High School.  During his time with Rotary, Hazen has been instrumental in heritage preservation of the Park House as well as being instrumental in creating what we now know as the Gibson Gallery.

Amount of Scholarship

The Rotary Club of Amherstburg will award 1 prize of $2,000.00 annually to the graduating high school student who best exemplifies Hazen’s commitment to community service while maintaining high standards in education.
