Rotary Grants for University Teachers

University Grants »International Student Grants » Academic Grants

Higher-education faculty can teach abroad through Rotary Grants for University Teachers.

The program builds international understanding and fosters development while strengthening higher education in low-income countries.

It also aims to establish ties between higher-education institutions, leading to the exchange of ideas and information worldwide.

Grant recipients must teach subjects relevant to the local population’s needs and contribute to the area's socioeconomic development. Each year, about 20 grants are awarded.

How to apply:

Applications must be made through a local Rotary club. Club candidates go on to compete at the district level.

Application deadlines vary, so prospective applicants should contact their local club for this information.

Club deadlines for awards will generally be set between 1 March and 15 July.

Eligibility criteria:

  • Applicants must have held a full-time college or university appointment for at least three years but don’t need to have held a specific rank.
  • The subjects taught must be of practical use to the host country.
  • Applicants’ home and host countries must contain at least one Rotary club.
  • The proposed host institution must be located in a low-income or developing country, as defined by the World Bank.
  • Applicants must be proficient in the language of their prospective host country.
  • Applicants may be Rotarians or non-Rotarians.
