This scholarship is funded through global grants and supports future leaders in fields related to one of the 7 areas of focus:


Peace and conflict resolution

Disease prevention and treatment

Water and sanitation

Maternal and child health

Basic education and literacy

Economic and community development

Supporting the environment



Global grant scholarships fund graduate-level coursework or research.  A key factor is the partnership between the district or club in the study location (host sponsor) and the district or club in the scholar’s home country (international sponsor).


Global grant scholars plan to pursue a career in one of the areas of focus and their graduate-level educational goals should support this.  Pursing a career in an area of focus means the scholar has a long-term commitment to measurable, sustainable change.
