Georgia Rotary Scholarship Programme
We have had great success in sponsoring students over the years
Georgia Rotary Student Programme (GRSP)
Every year three Rotary Districts in Georgia, USA, sponsor up to sixty-seven students from around the world to study at one of Georgia's Universities for an academic year.
We advise our local high schools of these opportunities and in June each year we hold an information meeting for students, and their parents, who may be interested in applying.
This is really a wonderful opportunity for these young people as the costs covered are for all their education fees, board and lodgings and books - this programme is worth in the region of $30,000! Apart from spending money the only costs covered by themselves (or their parents!) are their flights, insurance, sitting a SAT, visa and ESTA - total cost to a successful applicant is in the region of £3,000. We are delighted that out of sixty-seven students from around the world our Club has sent between two and five each year. They have all benefited from this great life experience.
Applicants MUST be 18 years old on or before 1st August in the year they will go out to Georgia.
