GRANTS AND FELLOWSHIPS

 
Rotary clubs can apply to The Rotary Foundation for district and global grants (fellowships). Interested parties should contact their local club re sponsorship and coordination. 
 
For Arlington residents or graduates: there are three Arlington clubs including this one. There are many more Rotary clubs in the Washington metro area. Use the club finder at Rotary International.
 
Global grants are for graduate students studying abroad in one of Rotary’s six causes:
 
  1. Promoting peace
  2. Fighting disease
  3. Providing clean water, sanitation, and hygiene
  4. Saving mothers and children
  5. Supporting education
  6. Growing local economies
Scholarships last from one to four years and can include an entire degree program. Global grant scholarships are funded using cash or District Designated Funds matched by the World Fund.
 
District grants can be used to sponsor secondary school, undergraduate, or graduate students studying any subject, either locally or abroad. The scholarship may cover any length of time, from a six-week language training program to a year or more of university study.
