More about the Rotary Foundation

I'd like to share a little bit about Rotary and the Ambassadorial Scholarship that I've been awarded.

This program is the world's largest privately funded international scholarships program. Since 1947 nearly 37,000 men and women from 100 nations have studied as Ambassadorial Scholars. Through grants totaling approximately US$428 million, recipients from some 70 countries have studied in more than 70 nations.
The purpose of the Ambassadorial Scholarships program is to further international understanding and friendly relations among people of different countries.

Promoting Rotary's goal of world peace, goodwill, and understanding, The Rotary Foundation's Educational Programs include Ambassadorial Scholarships, Grants for University Teachers, Group Study Exchange, and Rotary Centers for International Studies in peace and conflict resolution, and Rotary Peace and Conflict Studies Program. These programs foster peace by building understanding through person-to-person contact, friendship, study, and cross-cultural exchange.
