Georgia Rotary Student Program  Annual Conclave

Georgia Rotary Student Program
 Annual Conclave - Districts 6900, 6910 & 6920


GRSP HISTORY

Since 1946, Rotarians in Georgia, USA, have promoted world peace through understanding by offering scholarships to international students for one year of study in Georgia colleges and universities. Georgia Rotary Clubs sponsor students recommended by a Rotary Club in their home country. The students become adopted members of a Georgia “host family,” living on-campus at the school they attend. This is a scholarship program, not an exchange!

Each year, about 50 students from all over the world make friends in the United States and other nations and learn about differing cultures and life styles. Georgia Rotarians believe “Peace is Possible” and through GRSP promote international goodwill.
