Rotary District 6910 maintains a district level application process including both a written application and in-person interviews (when possible). The application process for a Global Scholar Grant begins however with a District 6910 Rotary Club nominating a scholarship candidate. Best practice would have a Club both receive an application from and then interview the candidate to make sure they are in keeping with the districts high standards.
