Ever dream of studying abroad ?
RotaryClub of the Boundary is looking for Candidates for the Ambassadorial Scholarship 2012-2013, which allows a student to study for one academic year in another country. It is a prestigious program: two former Ambassadorial Scholars are New England’s Bill Moyers and Canadian Governor General David Johnston.
According to the organization’s website: “The purpose of the Ambassadorial Scholarships program is to further international understanding and friendly relations among people of different countries and geographical areas. The program sponsors academic year scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students as well as for qualified professionals pursuing vocational studies. While abroad, scholars serve as goodwill ambassadors to the host country and give presentations about their homelands to Rotary clubs and other groups. Upon returning home, scholars share with Rotarians and others the experiences that led to a greater understanding of their host country.”
All applicants need to be sponsored by the Rotary club in the applicant’s legal or permanent residence or place of full-time study or employment. All Ambassadorial Scholarship candidates must have completed at least two years of university or college OR a secondary school education with employment in a recognized vocation for at least two years. Applicants must attend a face to face interview with the District Committee.
Candidates are encouraged to consider studying in countries that host fewer scholars, such as Japan, Korea, Scandinavia, and developing nations in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and South America.
Applications must be received by Wednesday, June 15, 2011, by email to Bob Richardson at email@example.com or in hard copy to Ambassadorial Scholarships
