Update on Peace Fellow Scholarship Procedures …
Michael W. Little, District Peace Fellow Scholarship Chair, has just updated the 2017 -18 peace-fellow-scholarships-information-sheet. This set of procedures outlines the steps and timelines for a club to follow to sponsor a Peace Fellowship in the 2018 -19 academic year. For the academic year of 2018 -19 the applicant must apply for sponsorship by the club by May 1, 2017. From there the application is reviewed by the district in the May/June timeframe. If endorsed by the District the application is forwarded to The Rotary Foundation in Chicago by July 1, 2017. Again the application process is for the 2018-19 academic year.
Michael’s contact information is on page 2 of the guidelines or in ‘Find a Member’ on dacdb.com. The guidelines are also on rotary7600.org/The Rotary Foundation/Programs & Grants.
