The Rotary Foundation, its districts and clubs invest in our future leaders and philanthropists by funding scholarships for undergraduate and graduate study.
The Rotary Foundation offers scholarships for college graduates and professionals to study peace and conflict resolution as well as water and sanitation. 
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. 
 Rotary clubs and its districts can also apply to The Rotary Foundation for global grants to support scholarships.  These grants are for graduate students studying in one of Rotary’s six areas of focus:  Promoting peace, fight disease, providing clean water, sanitation and hygiene, saving mothers and children, supporting education and 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, which are matched by Rotary’s World Fund. 
Rotary clubs offer scholarships for secondary, undergraduate and /or graduate study.  They are open to anyone except Rotary members and their families. 
In the past over $7.5 million on average have been given each year for over 350,000 scholarships. Contact your club, district or The Rotary Foundation for more information. 
Your contribution to TRF and its Peace Center enables this to happen.  Thank you.
