How much do your club and district officers know about this newer grant opportunity from The Rotary Foundation? Programs of Scale are designed to support and scale up member-led, evidence-based programs that have already demonstrated success. These grants provides your members with longer-term resources to implement large-scale, high-impact programs in our areas of focus. They can supply the resources to increase our impact by measuring project progress, and sharing what we learn in the broader Rotary community.
Each year, this competitive grant process results in one award of $2 million, distributed over a three- to five-year period to a club- or district-sponsored program showing success and readiness to expand to serve more people or in a broader geographic area. Approved programs must be sponsored by a qualified club or district, but will be implemented with experienced partners who are also committed to long-term success and sustainability.
The grant process has a two-step competitive application process that will start in June and last 9 to 10 months. NOW is the time to start working on your concept. Register for the Programs of Scale Competition: Insights and Tips for Applying webinar to understand the criteria and how to apply. The webinar will be offered twice on April 26th. Register for the 8:00 a.m.session or for the 4:00 p.m. session (both times Central).
