Applications now being accepted
for Ambassadorial Scholarships

The Westminster 7:10 Rotary Club is accepting applications for Ambassadorial Scholarships, the oldest program of the Rotary Foundation and the world’s largest privately funded international scholarships program.

Since 1947, more than 40,000 men and women have studied abroad under its auspices in more than 150 countries.

In recent years the Ambassadorial program has annually selected about 400-800 students to study in a country other than their own.  

The Ambassadorial Scholarships program promotes international understanding and friendly relations among people of different parts of the world. Current applications are for study in the Rotary year 2013-14.

They are limited to graduate study and will provide a minimum of $30,000.

Candidates must have previous work experience, intended graduate degree studies, and future career plans that are related to one of the following study areas as established by The Rotary Foundation and Rotary International: peace and conflict prevention/resolution, disease prevention and treatment, water and sanitation, maternal and child health, basic education and literacy and economic and community development.

There are two steps to the process, a pre-qualification application and then a full application.

The pre-qualification application should be faxed to 303-265-9329, or emailed to Bob Forbes at bob@ForbesMA.com, on or before Feb. 12.
