– 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.
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.
ACADEMIC-YEAR AMBASSADORIAL SCHOLARSHIP
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.
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 atwww.rotary.org 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.
