Rotary’s programs are developing the next generation of leaders, providing funding to make the world a better place, and making peace a priority. And our programs are not just for club members. Learn how you can make a difference in your community through Rotary.
Rotary Peace Fellowships
Each year, Rotary selects up to 130 professionals from around the world to receive fully funded academic fellowships at our Rotary Peace Centers.
Rotary Community Corps
Finding community solutions to community challenges, Rotary Community Corps unites Rotary members with nonmembers to make a positive difference.
Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA)
RYLA is a leadership development program for young people who want to learn new skills, build their confidence, and have fun. Events range from one-day seminars to weeklong camps.
Rotary Youth Exchange
Rotary Youth Exchange builds peace one young person at a time. Students learn a new language, discover another culture, and truly become global citizens.
New Generations Service Exchange
New Generations Service Exchange is a short-term, customizable program for university students and young professionals up to age 30. Participants can design exchanges that combine their professional goals with a humanitarian project.
For 100 years, The Rotary Foundation has been turning project ideas into reality. Our clubs receive funding to support humanitarian projects, scholarships, and international exchanges.
Rotary invests more than $7 million a year in our future leaders and philanthropists by funding scholarships for undergraduate and graduate study.
Help us create the next generation of peacemakers
In just over 20 years, The Rotary Foundation has trained more than 1,700 fellows at our Rotary Peace Centers. Many of them have gone on to serve as leaders at international organizations like the United Nations and World Bank or to form their own foundations.
