About Ambassadorial Scholarships


     "The Rotary Foundation does some terrific things, not the least of which is the
Ambassadorial Scholarships program." 
Michael R. Whiteman, international programs director, University of Idaho 


     The purpose of the Ambassadorial Scholarships program is to further interntional
understanding and friendly relations among people of different countries and geographical areas.
     The program sponsors several types of scholarships for
undergraduate and graduate students as well as for qualified professionals pursuing vocational studies.
While abroad, scholars serve as goodwill ambassadors to the host country and
give presentations about their homelands to Rotary clubs and other groups.

     Upon returning home, scholars share with Rotarians and others the experiences that led
to a greater understanding of their host country. 

Generous contributions from Rotarians worldwide represent a continued faith that today's
Ambassadorial Scholars will be tomorrow's community and world leaders.
