Rotarians plan India exchange
SALEM - Rotarians of District 6650, comprised of 10 counties in east central Ohio, are seeking four outstanding professionals to visit India in mid-January through mid-February 2013 as part of the Group Study Exchange (GSE) program of the Rotary International Foundation.
Through the program, teams of professionals exchange visits between paired areas in different countries. The award involves a four week visit, during which team members share personal knowledge of their own country and experience the customs, vocations, and lifestyles of another.
The purpose of a Group Study Exchange is to promote international understanding and goodwill through person-to-person contact. While abroad, team members stay in Rotarians' homes and have the opportunity to meet their professional counterparts. They will also give presentations to Rotary clubs and other groups about their home country. The Rotary International Foundation provides a round-trip air ticket, and local Rotarians in the host country provide meals, lodging, and group travel in their district. Team members pay for personal and incidental expenses including passport, travel insurance, and airport fees.
People interested in applying should be employed full-time in a recognized business or profession. Young professionals within the age range of 25 to 40 are encouraged to apply. Applicants must live or be employed in Rotary District 6650, which extends from Kinsman to Steubenville and west to Wooster and Millersburg. Applicants must be sponsored by a local Rotary club.
For an application, download the file at www.rotary.org/RIdocuments/en-pdf/161en.pdf For more information contact GSE Chairperson, Elayne Bozick at 330-360-3799 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
