Study in: any Country*
Course starts AY 2013/2014
The Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholarship program has ended in 2012-13. Beginning in 2013-14, The Foundation will offer scholarship opportunities through the Rotary Foundation Global Grants.
Global grants may be used to provide funding for academic studies provided that they:
• Fund graduate-level study that relates to one or more of the areas of focus
• Fund studies for a term of one to four academic years
• Sponsor the academic studies of an individual traveling from the international sponsor district to the host sponsor district
Areas of Focus:
Rotary Foundation Global Grants can be used to fund scholarships with sustainable, high-impact outcomes in one of Rotary’s six areas of focus:
Members of Rotary Clubs in Selected Districts (found in about 70 countries) or non-members sponsored by a Rotary Club
The minimum award amount from the World Fund for a global grant, regardless of activity type, is US$15,000, which results in a minimum total financing of $30,000.
When developing activities, clubs and districts should consider the following:
• Activities must be sustainable and measurable. For example: How will a scholar’s studies support one or more of the areas of focus?
• Activities should stem from real community needs.
• Global grants must be sponsored by two Rotary clubs or districts: a host partner in the country where the activity takes place and an international partner outside the country. Both partners must be Future Vision pilot members.
• Both partners must be actively involved in the planning and implementing of all global grants. This includes maintaining communication and developing plans for the shared responsibilities in all of the grant’s stages.
All Rotary Foundation Global Grant applications will be accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year. The application involves a two-step online process:
For club- and district-developed global grants, Rotarians will submit a brief online proposal before submitting a formal application. The proposal should provide an overview of the grant activity’s objectives and demonstrate how the activities fit within an area of focus. This process is designed to increase the acceptance rate of grant applications.
Once a proposal has been accepted, Rotarians will submit an online application that provides the Foundation with more detailed grant activity and budget information. (Depending on the award amount or complexity of the project, the Foundation may request additional details.)
You can contact the Rotary clubs in your respective countries (see contact details below) to inquire on how to be sponsored for the grant.
It is important to read the how to apply page and visit the official website for details on how to apply for the study grants.
Use the Rotary Club Locator to find contact information for Rotary clubs in your area/country.
