District Grants

District Grants may be used for local community or international projects. They are intended for smaller projects; completion within twelve months and do not require an international partner, but still require active Rotarian involvement.


Global Grants

Global grants support large, multi-year international activities with sustainable, measurable outcomes in one or more of the six Areas of Focus.  They can fund projects, vocational training teams or post graduate studies – or a combination thereof – but must have minimum budget of $30,000.


Global Grant Scholarships

Global Grant Scholarships are for graduate-level academic studies for individuals who are pursuing a career in one of the six Areas of Focus.   District Grant scholars can be for either graduate our undergraduate studies and do not need to be within the six areas of focus.


 Vocational Training Teams (VTT)

Global Grant Vocational Training Teams are groups of professionals traveling abroad either to learn more about their profession or teach local professionals about a particular field within the six areas of focus.  There is no age requirement, but at least three members must be non-Rotarians.


Peace Fellow Scholarships

Every year Rotary awards up to 100 full scholarships for master’s-level degrees or a professional certificate in peace and conflict studies at six Rotary Peace Centers around the world.  Rotary World Peace Fellows participate in The Rotary Foundation’s mission of improving health, supporting education, and alleviating poverty.
