Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholarships
The world’s largest privately funded scholarship program, the purpose of the Ambassadorial Scholarships program is to further international understanding and friendly relations among people of different countries. Today, the program sponsors several types of scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students as well as qualified professionals pursuing vocational studies. While abroad, scholars serve as ambassadors of goodwill to the people of the host country and give presentations about their homelands to Rotary clubs and other groups. Upon returning home, scholars share with local Rotarians and others the experiences that led to greater understanding of their host countries. Academic-Year Ambassadorial Scholarships provide funding for one academic year of study in another country and can be used to cover travel and living expenses.
