Click >> 2015-16 Global Grants Scholar Package for complete information

District 5890 will sponsor Global Grant Scholars for the 2015-16 Rotary year. The grants are required to qualify under one of the six Areas of Focus established by The Rotary Foundation. Although it is not required in the Global Grant structure, the District Foundation Leadership Team has decided to retain the ambassadorial nature of the scholarship program in District 5890. More information regarding the requirements is contained in the Ambassadorial Scholarship Application form. We are aware that there will be many questions from clubs as we continue to convert programs to the Global Grant guidelines. Please find attached helpful information regarding how we in District 5890 will move forward with selecting scholars this year. Clubs that want to sponsor a Global Grant Scholar must be qualified under the grant management guidelines, and have signed the Memorandum of Understanding, before they can do so. If a club’s candidate is endorsed by the District 5890 Scholarships Committee, it is the responsibility of the sponsoring club and the endorsed candidate to jointly apply for a Global Grant Scholarship on The Rotary Foundation web site, and to comply with the procedures and regulations of The Rotary Foundation. The Rotary Foundation will ultimately determine the final approval or disapproval of the Global Grant Scholarship Application.

As always, please contact me with questions and I will make every effort to maintain our District 5890 website scholarship pages. Yours in Rotary Service, Bill Barmore District 5890 Scholarships Chair
