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 $4,000. These grants are intended specifically for vocational students who wish to pursue vocational studies. They are not designed to support students pursuing academic studies.
Only post high school grants for students at local schools -- community colleges, certification schools --will be accepted. There will be no grants for International schools or foreign students.  Clubs can also apply for regular grants in addition to the vocational grants.  Checks will not be issued to the students.  Final reports with proof of disbursement will be required. 
Within the District Grant program clubs can apply for these Vocational grants by using the District Website just like applying for any other district grant.  In the space for project name indicate that you are applying for a "Vocational Grant". Working with other cooperating organizations is encouraged.
