Engage Rotary. Change Lives.

Group Study Exchange

The Annual Programs Fund of The Rotary Foundation makes provision for every District in the world to participate in the Group Study Exchange program. By utilising some of the District Designated Funding (money contributed by Clubs and individuals to The Foundation) a second GSE team can be selected.

A Rotarian Team Leader and four non-Rotarian Team Members are selected to participate in an exchange to another District in another country to experience social, economic, business and cultural conditions and to observe their own professions in action.

GSE offers a unique opportunity to develop leadership skills, work on team building, and increase self-confidence. The program is designed to have an invaluable impact on the career of a young professional in the increasingly global workplace by creating networking opportunities and lifelong friendships.

Individuals who participate in this rewarding, once-in-a-lifetime experience will return home with a broadened cultural perspective and new understanding of a nation’s history, language, commerce, and government.

Read the District 9710 GSE Protocol.
