Come learn about our 2018-2019 GRSP student, Mhairi Gormley, and her plans for the year at this week's meeting!
Since 1946, Rotarians in Georgia, USA, have promoted world peace through understanding by offering scholarships to international studentsfor 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 60 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 through friendship and understanding.
