Eligibility Requirements of Rotary Foundation Global Scholarship Grants for Development :
Please see the scholarship page of the Rotary Club/District where you intend to apply for the eligibility requirements.
Interested applicants should use the Rotary Club Locator to contact their local Rotary clubs to find out how they can be sponsored for the grant.
Online applications for global grants are accepted. The initial application is created by the sponsor clubs or districts, and the scholar candidate then completes the scholar profile online.
Global grant scholarship applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year, but they must be submitted at least three months before the scholar’s intended departure date to allow enough time for the Foundation to review and process the application. **Each Rotary Club/District may have its own timetable.
It is critical to read the Rotary Global Grant Scholarship Supplement and go to the official website for more information on how to apply for the scholarship.
