This committee interviews local applicants for this very competitive international $25,000 scholarship program to spend an academic year abroad for post-graduate work. Members offer support and encouragement to candidates selected by our Rotary District for consideration by Rotary International.
Do I have to have a specific major to be considered?
No, but you do have to be willing to your graduate study in a field that will “help address the humanitarian needs of the worls community.” Examples include health care,population issues, literacy and numeracy and aging.
Do I have to have been admitted to a graduate program before applying?
No, because you have to list five universities in at least three separate countries.
Can I select the country I wish to study in?
While you can indicate universities, all listed institutions will be considered equally, and you can also be assigned a university not on your list.
