|WPRC Has TRF Global Grant Scholar||Posted by Larry Myers||on Mar 01, 2016||
Rotary Club District 6270 is pleased to announce that Mr. Jason M. Gehrke has been awarded its 2016 Rotary Global Grant Scholarship (previously known as the Ambassadorial Scholarship).
As a Rotary scholar, Jason will join an international working group under the leadership of Prof. Rémi Gounelle, Strasbourg University, France. In Strasbourg, Jason will complete his dissertation focused on historical and religious foundations of human rights in politics. Jason intends to show how religious life and thought inform modern political societies to provide resources for peacemaking in global politics.
Jason is a Ph.D. Candidate in Religious Studies, Marquette University. His sponsor is Whitnall Park Rotary Club.
Congratulations also to the two global grant finalists: Anna Kasimatis, working with the World Bank in Rwanda, has been accepted to the University of Oxford and University of Cambridge for a master’s degree in philosophy in development studies to study poverty and human development. Anna is the first alternate. Thomas Wester, a senior at the U.S. Naval Academy, has been accepted to the University of Oxford and to Kings College to pursue a master’s degree in complex systems modeling, focusing on epidemiology.
Rotary District 6270 selects and partially funds one graduate student to study abroad (in one of Rotary’s six areas of focus) every other year. This year’s global grant scholarship totals $30,000 and is funded using $15,000 District Designated Funds, which is matched by the Rotary International World Fund.
