The purpose of the Rotary Foundation Scholarships is to further international understanding and friendly relations among people of different countries. Both men and women may apply for these Foundation Scholarships to complete one academic year of study or training in another country where Rotary clubs are located. During the time of study abroad, Rotary Scholars are expected to be outstanding ambassadors of goodwill to the people of the host country through both informal and formal appearances before Rotary clubs and districts, school and civic organizations, and other forums. After the period of study has been completed, the scholar is expected to discuss and share the experiences of understanding acquired during the scholarship year with the people of his/her home country and the Rotarians who sponsored the scholarship. The value of these Scholarship is up to $23,000.
Also offered are the Cultural Scholarship, which is for 3 months of intense foreign language study (value up to $10,000), and the University Grant, for those who are pursuing a concentration in teaching (value up to $10,000).
