The Hartman Scholarship was established through a generous bequest from former Rotarian Dr. Gerhard "Gerry" Hartman and his wife, Fern.  Dr. Hartman was a devoted member of the Billings Rotary Club and a Rotarian for 52 years.  Gerry and Fern’s desire to have a long-lasting impact on the college education of youth within the Billings area was the motivation behind the establishment of the Hartman Scholarship. 
The scholarship is administered by the Billings Rotary Foundation, the directors of which are members of the Downtown Billings Rotary Club.  Every four years a scholarship of $7,500 per year for four years is awarded to a graduating senior, from one of Billings' four high schools, who has a GPA of 3.25 or above, demonstrates financial need, and is nominated by his or her school counselor or principal. 
The Barry & Margaret Ann Nolan Scholarship fund was established in the name of long-time Rotarian Barry Nolan and his wife, Margaret Ann.  It enables scholarships to be awarded to the student finalists for the Hartman Scholarship in the amount of $500 per year for four years.  Barry and Margaret Ann were both very active  during Barry’s time as a member of the Billings Rotary Club.  Barry served as President and  District Governor and was a Multiple Paul Harris Fellow.  Always at his side, Margaret Ann was an Honorary Billings Rotary Club member and was also a Paul Harris Fellow.
