The Rotary District 6220 Board has approved a Global Grant Scholarship available for Academic Year: 2016-2017.  

The Rotary District 6220 Global Scholar Program provides $30,000 scholarship awards for graduate studies outside the USA.  Scholars must commence studies no earlier than the beginning of the academic year in the fall of 2016 and conclude no later than December 30, 2017 and expend the scholarship funds within 12 months of starting studies.

In anticipation of The Rotary Foundation’s (TRF) 100-year anniversary in 2017, the TRF Trustees set out to develop a plan to move the foundation toward its second century of service. The plan, called the Future Vision Plan, focuses TRF-funded programs to specific areas where they will have the greatest impact by addressing priority world needs that are presently most relevant to Rotarians.   

As a result, to be eligible for a Rotary District 6220 Global Grant Scholarship, an applicant must have a background, intended graduate studies and future career plans related to at least one of the following focus areas:

  • Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution
  • Disease Prevention and Treatment
  • Water and Sanitation
  • Maternal and Child Health
  • Basic Education and Literacy
  • Economic and Community Development

Pre-qualification Applications must be submitted by Monday, February 29.
