WHAT ARE GLOBAL GRANTS?

 

Global grants support large international activities with sustainable, measurable outcomes in one or more of Rotary's areas of focus.

 

Global grants must:

  • Be an international partnership between a Rotary club or district in the country where the activity takes place and a Rotary club or district outside of that country
  • Be sustainable and include plans for long-term success after the global grant funds have been spent
  • Include measurable goals that are demonstrated through progress reports
  • Align with one of our six areas of focus
  • Respond to real community needs
  • Include active participation from both Rotarians and community members
  • Have a minimum budget of US$30,000
  • Meet the eligibility requirements in the grants terms and conditions

You can use global grants to fund:

  • Humanitarian projects that support the goals of one or more of the areas of focus
  • Scholarships for graduate-level academic studies that relate to one or more of the areas of focus
  • Vocational training teams, which are groups of professionals traveling abroad either to learn more about their profession or teach local professionals about a particular field

HOW DO I APPLY FOR A GLOBAL GRANT?

The Rotary Foundation accepts global grant applications on a rolling basis throughout the year. Before a district or club can apply for a grant, it has to complete the qualification process. Once your club or district is qualified, you can apply for a global grant through the online tool. Click HERE for Global Grant Scholar Application Form needed to apply for this program.

HOW ARE GLOBAL GRANTS FUNDED?

Global grants are funded with a combination of District Designated Funds or cash contributions and matching funds from The Rotary Foundation’s World Fund. The World Fund will match 100 percent of District Designated Funds and/or 50 percent of cash contributions. The minimum award amount from the World Fund is US$15,000, which means that the minimum project budget is $30,000.
