Rotary's programs for students and youth can change the lives of those who participate. Through these programs, young people can earn scholarships, travel on cultural exchanges, or help a community through a service project.
Every year, thousands of talented and dedicated young people, ages 12-30, have an incredible experience in a New Generations program. As Rotaractors and Interactors, they serve in communities at home and abroad. Through Rotary Youth Exchange, they explore new cultures. And as Rotary Youth Leadership Awards participants, they learn skills that will help them succeed as future community leaders.
Rotary has a long tradition of fostering peace and international understanding through education. Since 1947, Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholarships have given more than 41,000 men and women the opportunity to study abroad, and in the future the new scholarship opportunities through the Foundation's district and global grants will give Rotarians greater flexibility to sponsor scholars.
Rotary Peace Centers offer a master's degree in international relations, sustainable development, peace studies, and conflict resolution, or a professional development certificate in peace and conflict studies.
