Nominations Now Open

District 6760’s Rotary Grad School (RGS) is now accepting nominations for students for the 2017-2018 Rotary school year.  Students are to be past club presidents who are interested, able and willing to serve in leadership positions at the District level and beyond. Students are nominated by fellow Rotarians, who serve as the students’ mentors during the course year. The mentors/coaches are expected to be in contact with their nominated student throughout the year and participate with the student in the lesson study and exam.

The RGS  Application Form is available for download here-> Student Application Form for 2017-18.

There is a $65 fee to cover books and materials.  This fee is payable only after notification that the student has been accepted for this year, and hopefully the fee will be paid by the student’s club.

The Grad School course consists of 7 lessons, one each month via email, beginning October 1, 2017 on various aspects of Rotary – Organization and Structure of RI; District 6760 History, Organization, Procedures and Policies; Our Rotary Foundation; Membership; Club Administration; Effective Service Projects; and International, Vocational and Youth Service.  A Past District Governor in our District serves as the “Professor” for each module. In addition, to the 7 lessons, there is a mandatory graduation ceremony in early May, ususally held in Dickson, where students can meet each other, interact with the professors and provided feed-back on the course.   If you have questions or comments, contact the RGS “Dean,” PDG Dick Bowers at bowers6760@mail.com.
