The Ambassadorial Scholarships program supports the vision of The Rotary Foundation to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace by:
– Increasing awareness of and respect for cultural differences by sending ambassadors of goodwill to study in another country
– Instilling in scholars the Rotary ideal of Service Above Self through active participation in Rotary service projects
– Encouraging scholars to dedicate their personal and professional lives to improving the quality of life for the people of their home communities and countries
– Developing leaders who can address the humanitarian needs of the world community
– Impacting all areas of the world through a balanced geographical distribution of scholars
– Encouraging Rotarians worldwide to increase the educational opportunities for scholars from lowincome countries
– Fostering a lifelong association between Rotary and its scholars

During the study period, scholars are expected to be outstanding ambassadors of goodwill to the people of the host country through appearances before Rotary clubs and districts, schools, civic organizations, and other forums. After study has been completed, scholars share their experiences with the people of their home countries and Rotarians who sponsored their scholarships.

General eligibility

Applicants must have completed at least two years of university or college course work, or must have a secondary school education and have been employed in a recognized vocation for at least two years when the scholarship begins. All applicants must be citizens of a country in which there is a Rotary club. Applicants must initially apply through a Rotary club located in the area
of their legal or permanent residence, or place of fulltime study or employment. Persons with disabilities and members of Rotaract clubs are eligible and encouraged to apply.
The following persons are ineligible for a Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholarship:

A Rotarian; an honorary Rotarian; an employee of a club, district, or other Rotary entity or of Rotary International; a spouse, lineal descendant (child or grandchild by blood or adopted or not adopted), a spouse of a lineal descendant, or an ancestor (parent or grandparent) of any living person in the foregoing categories.


This scholarship is for one regular academic year (usually nine months) of full-time study at an institution assigned by The Rotary Foundation. Because the scholarship is limited to one academic year, recipients may not be able to earn degrees or diplomas during the study period.
The scholarship may also be used for vocational training.

What does the scholarship cover?

The Academic-Year Scholarship provides a flat grant of US$27,000. Funding is intended to defray costs associated with round-trip transportation, one month of intensive language training (if assigned by the Foundation), required fees for a normal course load, room and board, and educational supplies. The Foundation will not pay additional costs resulting from personal living preferences. Applicants who request and are assigned to an institution where costs exceed the flat grant amount must pay all additional costs.

The availability of Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholarships is determined by each Rotary district and varies from year to year. Some districts may not offer scholarships.

Applicants must contact a local Rotary club to

– Determine if funding for a scholarship is available
– Inquire about local application deadlines

Applications may be obtained from the RI website if the applicant has confirmed scholarship availability with the local Rotary club.

Club-endorsed candidates will compete at the districtlevel, and district-endorsed applications will be forwarded to the Foundation for approval and studyinstitution assignment. The Foundation directly notifiesall candidates of approved scholarships and assignments.Applications sent directly to the Foundation without cluband district endorsements will not be considered.


Application deadlines are set by individual Rotary clubs in accordance with the district deadline. Club deadlines may be as early as March or as late as August of the year preceding study abroad. For example, an applicant interested in studying abroad starting after 1 July 2012 but before 30 June 2013 should submit an application to a local club between March and August 2011. Applicants approved by The Rotary Foundation will normally be notified of their study institution assignments by 15 December of the same year they apply.
