2010-2011 Rotary Club Scholarship Program accepting applicants
To help students who want to study internationally during upcoming college semesters, the Rotary Club Scholarship Program is offering another round of its annual scholarships for club members who plan to study abroad.
With nearly 800 scholarships available, the Rotary Club Scholarship Program is now accepting applications for 2010-2011 awards. Applications are due April 15.
The scholarship program offers three types of ambassadorial scholarships — academic-year, multi-year and cultural scholarships. Academic-year scholarships provide a flat grant of $23,000 for one academic year; multi-year scholarships offer a flat grant of $11,500 per year for two years; and cultural scholarships provide grants between $10,000 and $15,000 for up to six months of intense language and cultural studies in another country.
Students who are selected as Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholars are called to act as “ambassadors of goodwill” while they are studying abroad. Accordingly, the scholars represent their homelands while in attendance at international rotary clubs, school districts and civic organizations. They are also required to make oral presentations about their homelands for international rotary clubs and other forums in the countries to which they travel.
