Rotary Global Grant Scholar Program

The Rotary Global Grant Scholar Program is designed to award college graduate-level students $30,000 to study abroad. Our hope is to provide an enriching experience of study and humanitarian service, encouraging students to adopt Rotary's motto of "Service Above Self" as a lifestyle.
 
The requirements of the Scholar program are:
 
  • Scholarships are for graduate study only. Recipients must be college graduate students.
  • Scholarship recipients must study in a Rotary District in a foreign country.
  • Scholarship recipients must be proficient in the language in which their classes will be taught.
  • Study must be in one of the Six Areas of Focus:
    • Peace and conflict prevention
    • Disease prevention and treatment
    • Water and sanitation
    • Maternal and child health
    • Basic education and literacy
    • Economic and community development
  • The student must conduct/participate in the humanitarian project in their host District during their scholarship term.
  • The minimum scholarship amount is $30,000.
  • Scholarship recipients must participate in a pre-departure orientation seminar.
  • Scholarship recipients are required to give talks to clubs, attend District Breakfasts, and a District Conference before and/or after their study year.
  • The sponsoring club is responsible for covering the student's expenses for these in-District activities.
Please consult The Rotary Foundation website for the complete information about the program.
 
District 5280 will require that successful candidates give talks to clubs, attend District Breakfasts, and attend a District Conference before and/or after their study year. The sponsoring club will be asked to cover the student's expenses for these in-District events. Also, District 5280 may require that scholarship recipients conduct a humanitarian project in their host Districts during their scholarship term.
