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:

PRESS RELEASE: HOUGHTON ROTARY RAISES $16,000 FOR LOCAL FLOOD RELIEF
The Father’s Day Flood of June 2018 left hundreds of residents with minor to major damage to their homes and belongings. Many of these residents have received assistance and have returned to life as normal. However, other cases have fallen through the cracks and are still in need of assistance. The Rotary of Club of Houghton is pleased to present a check totaling $15,850 to the Keweenaw Community Foundation in support of ongoing flood relief efforts to help those who need it most. Rotarians have been collecting donations from our own members and generous community organizations since June. Houghton Rotary Club is one of many in District 6220 and the call for support from the District Governor resulted in donations from Rotary Clubs in other towns and states. In Michigan, donations have arrived from Rotary Clubs and affiliates in Ontonagon, Marquette, Crystal Falls, Munising, Birch Run, and Lansing. In District 6220, donations have poured in from Wausau, Menominee, Waupaca, Arbor Vitae, and Kewaunee. And heartfelt donations have come all the way from Arizona and California. Houghton Rotarians also got their hands dirty moving mud during the initial, time-sensitive clean-up effort.
On Monday November 5, 2018, Tom Schumacher from the Bay Area Community Council presented on their work to provide direction on what actions can be taken to arrive at better outcomes for a Greater Green Bay. I recommend that all Green Bay Rotary members check out their Web site at:
