Do you know a young person who is
ready for graduate study and wants to study abroad? Do they have career goals
which are consistent with Rotary Foundation Areas of Focus? Are they committed
to service and interested in building a relationship with a Rotary Club in
another country? Would $30,000 help them achieve their education goals? If the
answer to these questions is yes, then let them know about the Global Grant Scholarship funded by The Rotary Foundation.
District 6900 is
offering two competitive $30,000 scholarships for graduate study starting the
fall of 2018. The student’s career goals
must align with at least one of the Rotary Foundation Areas of Focus: Peace and
Conflict Prevention/Resolution, Disease Prevention and Treatment, Water and
Sanitation. Maternal and Child Health, Basic Education and Literacy, and
Economic and Community Development.

employee of a club, district, or any other Rotary entity; or the spouse, a
