The Rotary Scholarship offers a great opportunity to our young people who have a mission of furthering their study in advancing their career, in particular in the areas of Rotary’s six areas of focus. Our District, through the Global Grant, will sponsor young scholar to study abroad; and similarly, our clubs can also play host to students coming from overseas studying in Hong Kong.
The Rotary Foundation, under the Global Grant, will support scholars who are undertaking a graduate study (programme length can be one to four years) in a subject that fit one of the six causes:
