Again this year, D 7040 will be offering one (1) Global Grant Scholarship in the amount of $30,000 USD.  This is a competitive scholarship for permanent residents of D 7040 who have recently completed an undergraduate degree, who are going into the first year of their first graduate studies program, and they will be studying outside of their home country.  The purpose of the criteria is to give a boost to one of our talented young people as well as promote the Rotary theme of World Understanding and Peace.
In addition, D 7040 will be encouraging applications to the Rotary Peace Fellowship programs whether it be at the Master’s degree or at the certificate level.  These programs develop skills in peace keeping and conflict resolution.
Information regarding these programs will be up on the District website soon. Deadline for applications for both programs is April 15th with interviews taking place at the end of April or in early May.
