Appleton Rotary seeking applicants for 2022-23 Foreign Study Scholarship

Know a graduate student whose passion for making a difference in this world would be helped by a
year’s study in a foreign country?

District 6220 of Rotary International is seeking applicants for its Global Grant Scholarship for
graduate study in a foreign country during the academic year of 2022-23. Applicants must be college
graduates with a background, intended graduate study, and future career plans in one or more of these
Rotary focus areas:
• Peacebuilding and Conflict Prevention
• Disease Prevention and Treatment
• Water, Sanitation and Hygiene
• Maternal and Child Health
• Basic Education and Literacy
• Community Economic Development
• Environment (new for 2022)
The Rotary Global Grant Scholarship is a $30,000 award for graduate study in a geographic area
where Rotary has a presence. The winner must plan to enroll in a graduate-level (not doctorate)
program that starts in the fall of 2022 and concludes no later than year-end 2023.

Applicants must currently work, live, study or have a permanent address in Rotary District 6220,
which extends from the southern boundary of Outagamie County (Calumet St/KK) northward through
the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Children or grandchildren of Rotarians are not eligible for this

Details about the areas of focus, scholarship timelines, and the application forms are at:

To apply, complete the Prequalification Application and submit it to the District by December 31,
2021. The District Scholarship Committee will notify finalists on January 14, 2022 and finalists will
fill out a Full Application by Feb. 18. Applicants selected will be interviewed on March 5.

Two recent District 6220 Global Grant Scholars were sponsored by the Rotary Club of Appleton.

Transformation/Social Justice at Queen’s University in Belfast, Northern Ireland this past year, and
Keyla Higa, a 2020 graduate of Lawrence University, is finishing her studies in Governance of
Migration and Diversity through Erasmus University in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
