Rotary District 1260 Foundation Committee has funds available for an Ambassadorial Scholarship for the academic year 2012 - 2013. The Rotary Club of Aylesbury is in this district.

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.
Nominations from Clubs should be made by July 1st 2011.
If you would like to apply for this scholarship, then please contact us as soon as possible.

 The successful candidate will be: 
  • Ready to study overseas
  • Be from our District
  • Have shown academic capability and a commitment to a particular vocation (usually a post-graduate)
  • Not be a Rotarian or a relative of a Rotarian
