The Natchitoches Rotary Club presented the Northwestern State University Foundation with a donation of $18,500 to create an endowment for student scholarships. The Club's goal is to endow $25,000. Natchitoches Rotary invests in NSU students by awarding $1,000 to a local student, based on need. Ultimately, the Rotary Club Endowment will allow the Club to have a greater impact over time, while it still offers assistance annually to a deserving NSU student.
