The world has no shortage of problems. To focus Rotary efforts at its various levels, The Rotary Foundation (TRF) has identified areas where Rotary can contribute to lasting change.  These specific causes, known as Rotary's Seven Areas of Focus, help us align our local work and maximize our global impact. 
All scholarship/stipend/fellowship funding opportunities must relate to one of Rotary’s Seven Areas of Focus.

Rotary Scholarships Sponsored by RI District 6270

District 6270 Global Grant Scholarship

District 6270 Short-Term Scholarly Stipend

When available, such opportunities are advertised on District 6270's website.
Rotary Peace Fellowships
Each year, Rotary International (RI) awards up to 130 fully funded fellowships for dedicated leaders from around the world to study at one of seven peace campuses/programs throughout the world. There exists both a certificate program (at least five years of working experience related to peace/conflict resolution are required) and a master’s degree program (at least three years of working experience related to peace/conflict resolution are required). Rotary Peace Fellowships are international in scope and highly competitive. Application deadlines are announced as applicable.
