The Rotary District 6220 Board has approved a Global Grant Scholarship available for ACADEMIC YEAR: 2019-2020.

The Rotary District 6220 Global Grant Scholarship provides a $30,000 scholarship award for graduate (not doctorate) studies at a qualified college/university (i.e., has a graduate level program of study that directly relates to at least one of The Rotary Foundation’s (TRF) Areas of Focus) outside the USA for US citizens; or, for international citizens (namely, cannot have U.S. citizenship or have a green card or in the process of applying for U.S. citizenship), outside their native country where a Rotary host club can be identified. Scholars must commence studies no earlier than the beginning of the academic year in the fall of 2019 and conclude no later than December 30, 2020 and expend the scholarship funds within 12 months of starting studies.

In recognition of The Rotary Foundation’s (TRF) 100-year anniversary in 2017, the TRF Trustees set out to develop a plan to move the foundation toward its second century of service. The plan, called the Future Vision Plan, focuses TRF-funded programs to specific areas where they will have the greatest impact by addressing priority world needs that are presently most relevant to Rotarians.
As a result, to be eligible for a Rotary District 6220 Global Grant Scholarship, an applicant must have a background, intended graduate studies and future career plans related to at least one of the following focus areas:


Further information, including the “Prequalification Application” and “Timetable,” can be found on the District 6220 website (; “Global Grant Scholarship” page under “Rotary Foundation & Grants” page)


The mission of The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.

Charity Navigator rates over 9000 charities in the US for Financial Stability, Accountability, and Transparency. In the last 10 years, The Rotary Foundation has been ranked in the top 10 and the last 3 years it has been tied for first.
