Scholars Programs

 

District 7090 Scholarship:  Scholarship application is open and will end December 31, 2016. 

The Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholarship program has ended circa 2014.  Exciting news, our District has chosen to allocate $5000 for one scholarship available to offer to students currently enrolled in their first year of post-secondary study. There is no restriction as to where the school is.  This new grant structure gives Rotarians greater flexibility in sponsoring the next generation of leaders.

The club remains the point of contact for the applicants and must approve the scholar and submit the application to the District with its endorsement.

A club can have as many applicants as they can find (as long as they are not a lineal relative of a Rotarian).

Prospective applicants, download the application from this page.  To submit, contact your local area Rotary club.
 

Rotary Peace Fellowship: Fully completed applications must be in the hands of our District Scholarship Committee Chair, Shefali Clerk, @ sheelsaju5@hotmail.com, no later than May 31, 2017 to be considered by our District per Rotary International guidelines. All District 7090 clubs are encouraged to consider submission of applications from worthy individuals for the 2018 Peace Fellowships programs.  

The application cycle for the 2017 Rotary Peace Fellowship program is now closed. The application for the 2018 Rotary Peace Fellowship program will be available in mid-December, 2016.

What are Rotary Peace Fellowships?
Each year, Rotary selects up to 100 individuals from around the world to receive fully funded academic fellowships at one of our peace centers. These fellowships cover tuition and fees, room and board, round-trip transportation, and all internship and field-study expenses. Two types of peace fellowships are available.
 
1. Master's degree
We offer master’s degree fellowships at premier universities in fields related to peace and conflict prevention and resolution. Programs last 15 to 24 months and require a practical internship of two to three months during the academic break. Each year, RI awards up to 50 master’s degree fellowships at these institutions:
2. Professional development certificate
For experienced professionals working in peace-related fields who want to enhance their professional skills, we offer a three-month program in peace and conflict prevention and resolution at Chulalongkorn University in Thailand. This program incorporates two to three weeks of field study. RI awards up to 50 certificates each year.
 
Clubs, contact Shefali Clerk, Rotary District 7090 Scholarships Chair, or DRFC PDG Karen Oakes if you have questions about either of these scholarship programs.
