Welcome

Bristol Rotary's original and most enduring academic advancement award is named in honor of Karl Reiche, a longtime Superintendent of Schools in our city and a proud and devoted member of the Bristol Rotary Club of Bristol throughout his life and career.  This commemoration is now warmly referred to as The Reiche Family Award as his survivors have maintained it in his honor long since his passing.
 
Eligibility for the Reiche Family Award requires application for the Karl J. Schwartz Scholarship as it recipient is chosen from the pool of most highly ranked runner-up finalists of those applicants with an additional requirement being that the Reiche Family Awardee reside in Bristol and be graduating senior of one of the three Bristol-based high schools (Bristol Central, Bristol Eastern, or St. Paul Catholic H.S.)  Members of the nuclear families of current Bristol Rotarians are ineligible for this award.
