The Rotary Youth Exchange Scholarship

Rotary District 6690’s Youth Exchange Program, with the help of our local Rotary clubs and our overseas partners, has made a number of Rotary Youth Exchange Scholarships available for the 2018-19 academic year. Valued at over $24,000, each scholarship covers  room (homestay), board, tuition, and a monthly stipend while overseas.

The Rotary Scholars travel to their host countries in approximately late July to mid-September, 2018,  and return in approximately late June of the following year. They’ll attend high school in their host countries and are expected to act as goodwill ambassadors representing  Rotary and the USA.
