Rotary Grants to Teach in Developing Countries: June 1

Rotary District 7450 is offering a $10,000 grant open to university faculty (active or retired) who volunteer to teach in a developing country for 3-5 months during the 1997-98 academic year.

Developing countries are defined as countries with per capita GNP of US $5,999 or less. The purpose of the grants is to build international understanding and friendship while strengthening higher education in low-income countries.

Individuals who have held a college or university appointment within District 7450 for at least three years are eligible to apply. District 7450 includes Chester, Delaware and Philadelphia counties and portions of Bucks and Montgomery counties. There are no gender, age or marital status restrictions.

The grants are intended to supplement other stipends from sending or receiving institutions or other sources. Additional application forms and instructions and a list of 125 developing countries where the grants are tenable are available from Coordinator of University Teachers, Gerard J. Ebertz, Jr. (610-828-3663).

Completed applications must be received by Rotary District 7450 by June 1, 1996. Applications should be sent to Gerard J. Ebertz, Jr., 2026 Spring Mill Road, Lafayette Hill, PA 19444.
