Group Study Exchange was a Vocational and Cultural exchange program funded by the Rotary Foundation. A group of 4-5 young professionals and a Rotary team leader travel to another country and undertake vocational visits in like professions and undertake cultural visits. As this was an exchange program, a team from the overseas county does a return visit.
Foundation funding for the Group Study Exchange program ended in 2015 so ongoing exchanges of this nature are now funded directly by Rotary Clubs and Districts. Instead, the Foundation now funds Vocational Training Teams (VTTs). VTTs are intended to transfer vocational skills and must meet the Foundation’s criteria for grant funding.
