Ambassadorial Scholarships are for one or more collegiate academic years abroad and provide funding for round-trip transportation, tuition and fees, room, board, some educational supplies, and language training (if necessary). The scholars will also implement a service project while abroad.
These scholarships, which are designed to further international understanding and goodwill, provide for college study abroad in more than 160 countries where Rotary clubs are located and some non-Rotary countries. Some 1,300 scholarships of various types will be available from clubs worldwide.
During their studies abroad, Rotary Foundation Scholars act as “ambassadors of goodwill”. Through appearances before Rotary clubs and districts, schools, civic organizations, and other forums, the scholars represent their homeland and work to further international understanding.
