Global Grants
Global Grants, which include Global Grant Scholarships, are grants managed by Rotary International and an individual club requesting the grant.  Funding is provided from the World Fund which is comprised of half of the Annual Program Fund giving from all Rotary Clubs worldwide, three years ago.  After the Rotarian donations have been invested by the Foundation for three years, the donations are placed in a pool and international project applications received from clubs are evaluated by the RI Foundation staff and funded as appropriate and as funding resources allow.
Global Grants are intended for larger projects that can span Rotary years.  Global Grant Scholarships fund one year of post-baccalaureate study at a recognized university in a country other than the United States.  The funding minimum by TRF is $15,000 with a minimum project cost of $30,000.  Club funding in the formula is matched $.50 per $1 and DDF matched $1 for $1.  A combination of funding sources is involved.  An application, report form and guidelines are available for viewing/download on the TRF web page (Link:
