ROTARY GLOBAL GRANTS INFORMATION
Rotary Global Grants applicants identify one of six areas of focus upon which to base their scholarship studies, projects during the study year, and future career goals. A wide range of majors may be relevant to the scholarship (i.e. an engineer may have ideal skills to fulfill a water and sanitation project; a political science major may have the background knowledge to prosper in a peace and conflict studies program; a Master’s candidate in education could spend his or her post-grad year on an education and literacy research project). The six areas of focus are:
- Peace and conflict prevention/resolution
- Disease prevention and treatment
- Water and sanitation
- Maternal and child health
- Basic education and literacy
- Economic and community development
Although this is a competitive award drawing applicants from top universities nationwide, the strong qualifications of UCLA applicants may mean that candidates have an excellent chance of advancing to the interview stage. Westwood Village Rotary Club has an excellent track record of supporting successful UCLA candidates for this scholarship.
