Through global grants, Rotarians can support future leaders in fields related to the areas of focus with global scholarships:
  • Peace and conflict prevention/resolution
  • Disease prevention and treatment
  • Water and sanitation
  • Maternal and child health
  • Basic education and literacy
  • Economic and community development
  • The Environment
Global grant scholarships fund graduate-level coursework or research for an academic year. A key feature of global grants is the partnership between the district or club in the study location (host sponsor) and the district or club in the scholar’s home country (international sponsor). Both sponsors must be qualified before they can submit an application. Minimum grant amount is $30,000. Amounts higher than $40,000 will require additional approvals.
