Rotary accepting applications for $40,000 scholarship

Southern Indiana Rotary clubs are accepting applications for a $40,000 Rotary District Global Grant Scholarship. The scholarship is designed to help a southern Indiana student to study in a graduate program at any qualified university outside the U.S.

Rotary officials say the 2020-21 program is open to students who attend a four-year college in southern Indiana (or who maintain a legal residence in the district) and who plan to pursue graduate-level studies at an overseas university.

Officials say the program “supports exceptional scholars dedicated to pursuing a career in an area of great humanitarian need and who demonstrate a long-term commitment to measurable, sustainable change.” Scholars must present a plan of study and a career commitment that align with one of The Rotary Foundation’s six areas of focus.
