Now accepting applications for Himmel scholarships

May 21, 2014

The Kiwanis International Foundation is excited to announce two scholarship opportunities 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 eventually elected as trustee of Kiwanis International. Later, he served as president of the Kiwanis International Foundation for ten 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 so many individuals.

With his devotion to service and leadership in the community, he established a scholarship fund to benefit Key Club International and Circle K 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 scholarship opportunity each to Key Club and Circle K International members. To download the Key Club application and instructions, click here.

Digital submissions are encouraged, but must contain original signatures, and can be submitted to scholarships@kiwanis.org.

These scholarships are being offered in addition to the Cunat and Canaday scholarships for Circle K International and Key Club members. For more information on those opportunities, click here.
