Scholarships-The Rotary Foundation

Scholarships The Rotary Foundation

                  

The Rotary Foundation's oldest and best-known program is Ambassadorial Scholarships, established in 1947. Since that time, more than 30,000 men and women from 100 nations have studied abroad under its auspices. Today, the Ambassadorial Scholarships Program of The Rotary Foundation is the world's largest privately-funded international scholarships program. More than 1,300 scholarships were awarded for study in 1998-99. Through grants totaling approximately US$24 million, recipients from some 65 countries will study in more than 50 different nations.

Types of Scholarships

Currently, three types of scholarships are offered:

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$23,000 or its equivalent. The most common type of scholarship offered, more than 1,000 Academic-Year Scholarships were awarded for study in 1998-99.

Multi-Year Ambassadorial Scholarships are for either two or three years of degree-oriented study in another country. A flat grant of US$11,000 or its equivalent is provided per year to be applied toward the costs of a degree program. Mainly offered by Rotary districts in Japan and Korea, 138 Multi-Year Ambassadorial Scholarships were awarded for 1998-99.

Cultural Ambassadorial Scholarships are for either three or six months of intensive language study and cultural immersion in another country and provide funds to cover round-trip transportation, language training expenses, and home stay living arrangements, up to US$10,000 and US$17,000 respectively. Applications are considered for candidates interested in studying Arabic, English, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swahili, and Swedish.

Some Rotary districts may only offer one type of scholarship; applicants must check with the local club regarding availability.
