Since 2015, nearly $400,000 in Rotary Foundation Global Grant scholarships have been awarded to Clinton School of Public Service students.

The Global Grant scholarship program aims to promote international understanding, peace, and development by investing in the education and professional development of outstanding international students. It is designed to support scholars who have a demonstrated commitment to service, leadership, and a strong desire to make a positive impact in their communities and the world.

The Clinton School’s grant sponsor is Rotary District 6150, which includes parts of central and northeast Arkansas, and District Governor Nancy Leonhardt in cooperation with 12 Rotary Districts in the United States.

Admitted students who are international citizens can be considered for the Rotary Foundation Global Grant. The Clinton School Admissions Office will choose two admitted applicants based on the overall strength of their application and service record in April, and will work with them on their respective process of separately applying for the Rotary Grant during the months of April through June.

The two admitted international students will be notified that they are selected to apply to Rotary in April, and will receive a funding decision from Rotary by July.
