Dear Rotarians,
 
With the leadership of our newly appointed District Scholarship Chair, Harry Panjer (Comox Rotary Club), we are excited to ask for your assistance in finding suitable candidates who would potentially qualify as Ambassadorial and Peace Scholars.   Rotary District 5020 has funds to provide a post-graduate scholarship to an individual who is planning to purse graduate studies in 2019-20 in an area related to the goals of Rotary. The scholarship is for US$ 15,000 and can only be used in a country other than Canada and the USA. 
 
Each applicant for the scholarship must be sponsored by a club in District 5020. Please ask your club members ( announcement, newsletter, emails, etc) to identify possible applicants and bring their attention to the scholarship.  Detailed information about the scholarship as well as the application form are available at 
 
This year, the deadline for complete applications is Jan. 15, 2019.  With such a short time frame it is imperative that this information get to potential applicants very soon.  
 
The selection of the winning applicant will be done by the D5020 Scholarship Committee in February of 2019.   Should you have further questions, please don't hesitate to contact Harry Panjer at 250.650.7675 or harry.panjer@gmail.com
 
Rotary District 5020 has a remarkable history of commitment to this program which has the ability to transform individual lives and entire communities.   We hope to see this tradition continue.  
 
Thank you for your help in supporting this program.
 
Craig Gillis
