This project is a Global Grant Scholarship to enable our candidate to pursue a Master's degree in Health and International Development at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). The overall needs being addressed are worldwide disease prevention and treatment, particularly in developing countries. The anticipated timeline is as follows:

The project funds will be used to pay for books, room and board and tuition at LSE.

Host club members will host Candidate at club meetings, introduce her to other Rotary Scholars, and be available for support and encouragement.

International club members will communicate with her regarding progress, and will schedule her to attend and speak at club and district events when she returns.

DDF contributions in grey are pending approval of the corresponding district committee.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
