About the Program
The Rotary District 6220 Global Scholar Program provides $30,000 scholarship awards for graduate (not doctorate) studies at a qualified college/university (i.e., has a graduate level program of study that directly relates to at least one of TRF’s Areas of Focus) outside the USA for US citizens; or, for international citizens (namely, cannot have U.S. citizenship or have a green card or in the process of applying for U.S. citizenship), outside their native country where a Rotary host club can be identified. Scholars must commence studies no earlier than the beginning of the academic year in the fall of 2020 and conclude no later than December 30, 2021 and expend the scholarship funds within 12 months of starting studies.
Eligible applicants will have a demonstrated record of high academic achievement; a reasonable level of proficiency in the language of the region of study; excellent leadership skills and potential; a proven record of success in his or her academic field or vocation; a commitment to community service; well-defined and realistic goals; concrete ideas for advancing within his or her chosen field; and, sincerity about maintaining a lifelong relationship with Rotary after the scholarship period.

Clean Water and Sanitation - the Rotary theme for March is such a big part of life. Thank you for everything you continue to do that makes life healthier, happier, and more successful. We might take these things for granted but we know others are not so fortunate. That’s where Rotary makes a big difference. Your gifts to The Rotary Foundation provide funding for grants that might help build cisterns, purchase water filters, and much more. Let’s keep up the good work going through Foundation giving.
