Global Grant Scholarship Information
The $40,000 Rotary District 6580 Global Grant Scholarship enables a southern Indiana scholar to study one to four years in a graduate program at any qualified university outside North America. The 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.
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 Rotary’s seven areas of focus.
While studying abroad as a Global Grant Scholar you will make presentations to Rotary clubs and other groups about Rotary, Indiana and the United States. Upon returning home, you will share your experiences with southern Indiana Rotarians.

Global grant scholarships are for graduate students studying abroad in one of Rotary’s seven causes: Promoting peace; Fighting disease; Providing clean water, sanitation, and hygiene; Saving mothers and children; Supporting education; Growing local economies; and Supporting the environment. Scholarships last from one to four years and can include an entire degree program. Global grant scholarships are funded using cash or District Designated Funds matched by the World Fund.
