The scholars will be ratified and assigned to their study institutions by the Trustees of the Rotary Foundation.
Academic-Year Ambassadorial Scholarships are for one collegiate academic year abroad and provide funding for round-trip transportation, tuition and fees, room, board, some educational supplies, and language training (if necessary) up to a maximum award of US$25,000 or its equivalent.
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.
