TRULY WORTH CONSIDERING (get a team together why don’t you!)


Volunteer Service Grants support qualified Rotarians and their spouses traveling internationally to provide a needed service or plan a needed project in a community. Eligibility for travelers is based on:

        A defined community need

        A need that can be met by the team’s experience and skills

        An understanding that the skills and experience are not available in the community

The award is a flat grant of US$3,000 for an individual or $6,000 for a team of up to five members. A single project site may not benefit from more than one grant award at any given time. An individual volunteer may receive no more than two Volunteer Service Grants per Rotary year.

How to apply

Applications are accepted throughout the Rotary year. They should be received by the Foundation three months before the anticipated departure and approved at least eight weeks before the scheduled departure.


Download the application (PDF) (Word)


Terms and conditions

All Volunteer Service Grant expenditures and activities must comply with the terms and conditions (PDF) of a Volunteer Service Grant.


Eligible budget items include economy-class airfare arranged or approved by the Rotary International Travel Service, minimal daily living expenses, and ancillary costs. Remaining funds may be used for project-related expenses.

Reporting requirements

All Rotary Foundation grants require the highest attention to stewardship. Reports for Volunteer Service Grants must be submitted within two months of the project’s completion. The international partner must submit a final report (PDF)   (Word) . The host partner must submit a postservice evaluation (PDF) (Word) .




A club member must attend or make up at least 50 percent of regular club meetings in each half of the year (though some clubs may have more stringent requirements). Any missed meetings must be made up within 14 days of a regular meeting.  If traveling, club members are encouraged to visit clubs in the new area to make up a missed meeting.

Check the Official Directory or use the Club Locator to get meeting and contact information. Be sure to call or e-mail before you show up for a meeting.

What to do when you can't find a meeting

Rotarians often wonder what to do if there’s not a club where they travel or if an emergency causes them to miss a meeting.

One option is to attend a regular meeting of a local Rotaract club, Interact club, Rotary Community Corps or Rotary Fellowship. Attending one of these meetings counts as a make-up.

Another option is to participate in an interactive activity on a Rotary e-club Web site. Check with your club secretary and the e-club of interest to learn more.

Find out more about e-clubs.

Refer to the RI Bylaws to learn about other options for making up a missed meeting.
