Rotary Foundation Offers Study Abroad Scholarship

Students interested in obtaining a scholarship to study in a foreign country have a significant aid at their disposal with the Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholarship.

The scholarship offers students an award ranging from $11,000-$26,000, depending on actual costs at their assigned study institution. The academic year scholarship covers transportation between the student’s home and study city, some educational supplies, academic fees, and reasonable housing and meals. Students chosen to receive the scholarship are asked to be an ambassador of goodwill by making presentations in their host and sponsoring communities.

To be eligible for the scholarship, students must have completed at least two years of college-level coursework, or have equivalent professional experience prior to commencing their scholarship studies, be proficient in the language of their desired host country, and be a citizen of a country in which there is a Rotary Club.

There will be an informational meeting at 4:30 p.m. Nov. 30 in West Campus Suites 100.
