Applications for 2013 Rotary District 6540 Summer Study Abroad Scholarships to be awarded are now available from the Rotary Clubs in the northern Indiana region.

The scholarships, which are designed to further international understanding and goodwill, provide for study abroad in more than 60 countries where Rotary clubs are located.  TWO scholarships are available in the northern Indiana region. 

Students are eligible to apply if they have completed at least two years of university or college course work.

During their studies abroad, Rotary District 6540 Scholars act as “ambassadors of goodwill.”  Through appearances before Rotary clubs and districts, schools, civic organizations, and other forums, the scholars represent their homelands and work to further international understanding. 

Each Rotary District Summer Study Abroad Scholarship is for one summer abroad, in the amount of up to a maximum of $7000 each, to meet towards the expenses for round-trip transportation, tuition and fees, room, board etc. payable directly to the US educational institution offering the study or program.
