International Scholarship Program for Ambassadors of Goodwill
(The William J. Menghini District 6460 Endowment for a Scholarship – Established under the rules for Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarships)
The William J. Menghini 6460 Endowed Scholarship program supports the vision of The Rotary Foundation to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace by:
• Increasing awareness of and respect for cultural differences by sending ambassadors of goodwill to study in another country
• Instilling in scholars the Rotary ideal of Service Above Self through active participation in Rotary service projects
• Encouraging scholars to dedicate their personal and professional lives to improving the quality of life for the people of their home communities and countries
• Developing leaders who can address the humanitarian needs of the world community.
During the study period, scholars are expected to be outstanding ambassadors of goodwill to the people of the host country through appearances before Rotary Clubs and Districts, schools, civic organizations, and other forums. After study has been completed, scholars will be expected to share their experiences with the Rotarians in District 6460.
