Global Grant Scholarship Information
Indiana Rotary clubs accept applications for $40,000 Global Scholarship
Indiana Rotary clubs are accepting applications for a $40,000 All-Indiana
Global Grant Scholarship that will enable a scholar to study one to four
years in a graduate program at any qualified university outside North
The 2024-25 program is open to students who have graduated – or will
graduate by May 2024 – from a four-year Indiana college -- or who
maintain a legal residence in Indiana – 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.
The $40,000 global grant scholarship is funded through $8,000 in DDF
(District Designated Funds) from each of the three districts with $16,000
from The Rotary Foundation’s World Fund.
