Rotary Foundation funds post-graduate scholarships to foster international understanding. Some are Foundation Grant Scholars and others - funded mainly by individual Districts - are Ambassadorial Scholars

Anya Eber's Ambassadorial Scholarship year (2016-17) comes to an end. 

We have been delighted to have Anya with us for her Ambassadorial Scholarship year.  

Her Masters programme study courses, at Glasgow University, included antiquities trafficking and cultural heritage protection.

During the year she gave excellent presentations at the District 1230 annual Conference (October 2016) and at several Rotary Clubs, including our own.

Anya's Ambassadorial scholarship is sponsored by the Bainbridge Island Rotary Club in District 5020 - Western Washington State, USA, and Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

We shall miss her smiling face and her incredible energy and zest for filling every minute of her life!

We wish her all the best in her future studies and work.

In the past, we have been the sponsoring Club for three Ambassadorial Scholars:

PAUL McGONIGAL spent a year at the University of New South Wales in Australia studying International Human Rights Law.

DONNA FINLAYSON spent a year at Lund University, Sweden.

MARK KELLY spent a year at the University of Berkeley, California, studying Architecture.

All three of these young people are now following successful careers and continue to promote the aims of Rotary.
