Rotary District 6220 Newsletter - March 19, 2020

Dear Rotarians,

Due to the events surrounding the coronavirus and its impact on all of us individually, our communities and our ability to hold events, we have decided to cancel Celebrate 2020; our District Conference on May 1-2, 2020. Needless to say, we are all deeply disappointed in this decision but, as you can appreciate, in the end, we had little choice.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Rotary District 6220 Global Grant Scholarship ACADEMIC YEAR: 2020-2021

About the Program

The Rotary District 6220 Global Scholar Program provides $30,000 scholarship awards for graduate (not doctorate) studies at a qualified college/university (i.e., has a graduate level program of study that directly relates to at least one of TRF’s Areas of Focus) outside the USA for US citizens; or, for international citizens (namely, cannot have U.S. citizenship or have a green card or in the process of applying for U.S. citizenship), outside their native country where a Rotary host club can be identified. Scholars must commence studies no earlier than the beginning of the academic year in the fall of 2020 and conclude no later than December 30, 2021 and expend the scholarship funds within 12 months of starting studies.
