Bethany Carter "Global Scholar" We are sad to announce that due to the nationwide restrictions caused by the Coronavirus, for the time being our Club is not gathering for face-to-face meetings. But, we are meeting via Zoom

Rotary District 1260 - Beds, Bucks and Herts - is hosting seven   Global Grant Scholars  for this Rotary year 2020/ 2021. Five from the USA and two from Switzerland. All are ‘overflow’ scholars from London District 1130, studying at universities in the  capital and financed by Rotary Foundation Global Grants. The Rotary  Foundation, a world leading and forward  thinking international charity is based in  Evanston, USA and provides finance for educational and humanitarian programmes and projects..

All the scholars are studying for one year at their selected London universities, University College, London, the University of London, Kings College, London and the London School of Economics. As part of their Rotary Scholarship responsibilities,  pro-activity and involvement with Rotary in general and with Rotary Clubs  in District 1260 in particular is expected - also interactivity with their individual host clubs.

The requirement  is that they will  participate and present between six and  ten presentations at various Rotary Clubs. The Scholars are  communicative, stimulating and interesting. They are enthusiastic about visiting  the Rotary Clubs, are talented and pro-active speakers. If you are interested in attending one of the Scholar's presentations, contact, in the first instance
