Post Graduate Global Grant Scholarships

The District 9800 Post Graduate Global outbound scholarship is funded by a Global Grant valued from US$30,000 up to US$60,000. Applicants must study for a postgraduate degree in support of one of the seven focus areas as defined by TRF which are:

  • Peace and conflict prevention / resolution.
  • Disease prevention and treatment.
  • Water and sanitation.
  • Maternal and child health.
  • Basic education and literacy.
  • Economic and community development.
  • Environment

Opportunities for your Club within the Scholarship program are to:

  • Identify and nominate a scholar candidate.
  • Invite an inbound scholar to speak at a Club meeting or special function.
  • Provide a counsellor for an inbound scholar during their stay and involve the Club in hospitality – but not accommodation.

District 9800 remains the only district in the world to have successfully nominated one or more peace fellows each year since the program began in 2002. Let’s keep it that way. Committee members will help you nominate a candidate. In keeping with our commitment to the Rotary Peace Fellowship Program, and what it stands for, District 9800 contributes US$25,000 annually to the program and is designated by RI as a Peace Builder District.
