Rotary Scholarships, funded by Global Grants, are awarded for overseas graduate study. All studies fit within Rotary's seven areas of focus.

In Rotary District 1090 we are fortunate to host a large number of Rotary Scholars each year, studying at one of the five universities in our district. We are also able to fund one scholarship each year.

Here are the Profiles of the 23 Scholars we are hosting this year:
