“Honors enrichment classes help to form great relationships with professors. You sit down together as a team and design independent coursework pertaining to your own interest in that area of study. In the sometimes hectic, high-speed world of college, this type of independent work can be a once in a college career, if not lifetime, experience.”

Scholarship Spotlight

Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarships

www.Rotary.org

The purpose of the Ambassadorial Scholarships program is to further international understanding and friendly relations among people of different countries and geographical areas. The program sponsors several types of scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students as well as for qualified professionals pursuing vocational studies. While abroad, scholars serve as goodwill ambassadors to the host country and give presentations about their homelands to Rotary clubs and other groups. Upon returning home, scholars share with Rotarians and others the experiences that led to a greater understanding of their host country.
