Do you want to experience new cultures and expand your horizons?  Do you like new challenges and meeting new people?  Do you want to move out of your comfort zone?  BE A ROTARY EXCHANGE STUDENT!

You will choose 1-3 options from a long list of countries where you want to go and typically go to your first or second choice.  You will live with 2-3 host families who are excited to support you during your school and travel experience.

The program is an extremely affordable way to travel abroad and you may also work with our club to raise funds for months before you go.

Applications are due early November for the following academic year.
