Rotary Foundation Scholarships
Application Deadline: varies per Rotary district — check with your local Rotary Club

The Ambassadorial Scholarships program seeks to further international understanding and friendly relations among people of different countries. The program sponsors several types of scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students as well as for qualified professionals pursuing vocational studies. While abroad, scholars serve as ambassadors of goodwill to the people of the host country and give presentations about their homelands to Rotary clubs and other groups. Upon returning home, scholars share with Rotarians and others the experiences that led to greater understanding of their host countries.

Academic-Year Ambassadorial Scholarships provide funding for one academic year of study in another country. This award is intended to help cover round-trip transportation, tuition, fees, room and board expenses, and some educational supplies up to US$25,000 or its equivalent.

Multi-Year Ambassadorial Scholarships are for either two or three years of degree-oriented study in another country. A flat grant of approximately US$12,500 or its equivalent is provided per year to be applied toward the costs of a degree program.

Cultural Ambassadorial Scholarships are for either three or six months of intensive language study and cultural immersion in another country.

Individuals interested in applying for an Ambassadorial Scholarship should contact their local Rotary Club for an application and to inquire about scholarship availability. Since scholarship availability is determined by Rotarian contributions at the local level, not all Rotary clubs will offer scholarships, nor will all types of scholarships necessarily be available in a given year.  Application deadlines are set by individual clubs. Detailed information and applications are available on the Rotary Foundation website at www.rotary.org.
