Check Out the Global Grant Scholarship Opportunities - Applications Due October 16

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.

Scholars may NOT be a Rotarian; an employee of a club, district, or any other Rotary entity; or the spouse, a lineal descendant, or an ancestor of any person in the first two categories. Scholars MAY BE a member of a Rotaract Club. Scholars must have residence in District 6900 or must be employed full time in the District or be a fulltime student in a university in the District.

Applications are due Monday, October 16 at 12:00 noon.. For more information and a copy of the application, check out the Rotary 6900 website https://rotary6900.org/scholars.
