Rotary in Action Worldwide

The Rotary International Network enables us to work with volunteers throughout the world.

With a focus on health, education, disaster relief and other humanitarian issues, projects instigated by Rotarians in their local clubs, are supported by District and Global grants and the Rotarian network of volunteers worldwide, to make their ideas become reality. 

You will find Rotary Clubs in over 200 countries.  Our 1.2 million members have fun, enjoy friendship and share a commitment to improving lives at everything from local community to international level.   Every Rotarian is a volunteer, dedicated to tackling the world’s most pressing humanitarian problems and using his or her skills, talents and abilities to provide practical help and raise vital funding when and where needed.

2017 Rotary Foundation and UNESCO Scholarships

The Rotary Foundation and UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education are working together to tackle the world’s water and sanitation crisis and are offering up to 10 scholarships for graduate study at UNESCO-IHE's Delft campus in the Netherlands. The partnership aims to increase the number of trained professionals who can devise, plan, and implement water and sanitation solutions in developing areas. The scholarships also are designed to promote long-term productive relationships between Rotarians and skilled water and sanitation professionals in their communities.

Scholars will receive a Master of Science degree in urban water and sanitation, water management, or water science and engineering. Graduates work with their Rotary club sponsors on a related project to benefit their local community. The application deadline is 15 June. For more information, review the
application toolkit and scholarship terms and conditions.
