 District 6780 Rotarians,

 The Rotary District 6780 Education Committee is seeking candidates for the Rotary Global Scholar Grant. With this packet, we initiate the process for selecting Applicants for study in 2019-2020. DDF funds are currently committed for one scholar; and our District contributions are matched by The Rotary Foundation World Fund.  The minimum award is $30,000, but may be higher. D6780 makes every effort to fund the entire cost of the academic year abroad. An exceptional Applicant may be considered for a longer term of support if sufficient DDF for matching is available.

The Rotary Global Scholar Grant program is a different application process than the traditional Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship and it includes restrictions on acceptable programs of study. Included in this packet is important information for guiding clubs in: (1) decision-making regarding possible sponsorship of a candidate, (2) the application process, (3) club obligations for supporting and preparing a candidate for study abroad, and (4) the role of the District Scholarship Committee in the Rotary Global Scholar Grant application process. Additional pertinent information relevant to both the Sponsoring Club and Applicant(s) interested in pursuing a scholarship grant is included as appendices.

Information in this packet will be posted on the district’s website. Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you might have.
