A mbassadorial Scholarships, The Rotary Foundation's oldest and best-known program, was founded in 1947. Since then, more than 40,000 men and women from about 100 nations have studied abroad under its auspices. Today it is one of the world's largest privately funded international scholarships programs. Nearly 700 scholarships were awarded for study in 2009-10. Through grants totaling approximately US$16.2 million,
recipients from about 70 countries studied in more than 80 nations.
The purpose of the Ambassadorial Scholarships program is to further international
understanding and friendly relations among people of different countries and
geographical areas. The program sponsors academic year 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.
