Rotary Programs We Support
Group Study Exchange (GSE)
The Group Study Exchange program provides grants for teams of men and women in the early stages of their business and professional careers to travel abroad and share vocational information with the representatives of their respective professions in another country.
The GSE teams, comprising one Rotarian leader and four non-Rotarians engaged in different businesses and professions, spend four to six weeks studying the host country's institutions, economy, and culture, while observing how their own professions are practiced abroad. More than 500 exchanges between paired Rotary districts occur each year, advancing the program's ultimate goal of promoting international understanding and goodwill.
Usually, the GSE team from our District 6330 heads to the other district early in the year, with the other district's GSE team returning here to Ontario & Michigan in the late Spring/early Summer.
