Since 1946, Rotarians in the state of Georgia, USA, have promoted world peace through understanding by offering scholarships to international students for one year of study in Georgia colleges and universities. It is a unilateral scholarship, not an exchange program, nor is it a needs based scholarship. All three Georgia Districts participate in the program. Georgia Rotary Clubs sponsor students recommended by a Rotary Club in their home country. In Georgia, the students become adopted members of a Rotarian “host family”, living on campus at the school they attend. Each year more than 50 students from all over the world make friends in the US and learn about differing cultures and life styles. Rotarians believe that ‘Peace is Possible’ and through GRSP Georgia Rotarians promote international goodwill through the bonds of friendship and understanding.
