Rotary International Exchange Program Scholarship Program

Rotary International is proud to announce full scholarships to students who want to study abroad in high school.  Like a college scholarship, Rotary will pay all tuition at an International High School, Books, Room and Board, and provide the student with a monthly stipend of around $100 per month.  As is customary with college scholarships, the student is responsible for travel, insurance, and application fees.
Rotary District 7890 is proud to announce this program in conjunction with our local high schools and stipulates that students will be able to select from a list of 40 countries.  Please contact your local Rotary club to ensure their participation in this program.  All student applicants should be in the top 40% of their class and display high moral character. 
Rotary International is one of largest service organizations throughout the world with clubs in nearly 200 countries.   This organization offers students from 15 to 18.5 years old at time of departure, an opportunity to study internationally and not only become fluent in another language but become familiar with the country’s customs and traditions.  They will study in local schools and live with local families and acquire  attributes that they will find indispensable throughout their lives like independent decision making skills, budgeting, handling unique situations, and developing greater self confidence. 
Applications are now available on and initial interviews will take place at Springfield College during the first week of December.   Students who have just graduated from high school are eligible for this program as long as they are under 18.5 upon departure.
Applications will be accepted up to January 31st but please be aware that many countries will not be available because their slots will have been taken by those applying and interviewing during the December interviews.
