|Georgia Rotary Student Program Scholarship Information|
The Rotarians of the State of Georgia, U.S.A., operate a program by granting scholarships to students to study in the colleges and universities in Georgia. By using the means of scholarships, we are trying to promote international goodwill through the bonds of friendship and understanding with one another.
The Rotarians in Georgia believe that the bonds of international friendship can be strengthened with Rotarians in other countries by nominating students for the scholarships offered. Our plan does not contemplate an “exchange” of students, and there is no obligation in return to accept any students from the United States.
The Rotary Clubs in Georgia select the students and provide them with a host family, even though recipients are required to live on the college campus.
The scholarship covers one scholastic year, from August to May, and is for study ONLY in colleges and universities located in the State of Georgia, USA. The school to be attended in Georgia will be selected and processed for admission by the Georgia Rotary Student Program. The school will be suitable for the student to follow his or her proposed course of study. In the event that the school determines that the student does not meet its admissions standards, the scholarship offer will be withdrawn.
The Scholarship pays all scholastic costs, including tuition, book allowance, college provided room, and food. It DOES NOT cover transportation expenses to or from the United States (see Section III-2 for Transportation/Additional Funds Guarantee) or medical insurance costs (see Section III-3).
Any income taxes imposed on non-scholarship income by the U.S. Treasury are the student’s responsibility as well.
Applicants must be at least 18 years of age by August 1 or must not have reached age 25 by August 1 of the scholastic year (NO EXCEPTIONS).
Applicants who are married, or engaged to be married, will not be awarded a scholarship (NO EXCEPTIONS).
Applicants who have previously studied in the U.S.A. for a period exceeding four months cannot be considered for a scholarship (NO EXCEPTIONS).
