What is the Georgia Rotary Student Program?
Since 1946, Rotarians in Georgia, USA, have promoted world peace
through understanding by offering scholarships to international students
for one year of study in Georgia colleges and universities. Georgia Rotary
Clubs sponsor students recommended by a Rotary Club in their home country.
The students become adopted members of a Georgia “host family,” living
on-campus at the school they attend. This is a scholarship program, not an exchange!
Each year, about 60 students from all over the world make friends in the
United States and other nations and learn about differing cultures and life styles. Georgia Rotarians believe “Peace is Possible” and through GRSP promote international goodwill through friendship and understanding.
The GRSP scholarship covers: One scholastic year, from August to May, and is for undergraduate study in colleges and universities
located in the state of Georgia.
Our GRSP scholarship pays: Tuition, Book allowance, Meals and a college-provided dorm room
