What district grants support

You can use District Grants to fund a variety of District and club projects and activities, including:

  • Humanitarian projects, including service travel and disaster recovery efforts
  • Scholarships for any level, length of time, location, or area of study
  • Youth programs, including Rotary Youth Exchange, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA), Rotaract, and Interact
  • Vocational training teams, which are groups of professionals who travel abroad either to teach local professionals about their field or to learn more about it themselves

Vocational Grants:

A club can apply for a District Vocational grant for an amount up to $3,500.  These grants are intended specifically for vocational studies towards a certification program.  Vocational grants are not designed to support academic studies.  District Grant checks will be issued to the club, not directly to the school or student.

Only post high school grants will be accepted.  Certification programs may be attended at any local schools.  Clubs are eligible to apply for both District Grants, a Community grant and a Vocational grant.  The District Grant module is used to apply for either grants.  When applying for a Vocational Grant - label your Project Name starting with 'VOCATIONAL' - then the project name.

Working with other cooperating organizations and collaborating with other clubs is encouraged.
