Rotary's educational programs promote international understanding by bringing together people from different countries and cultures. The Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholarship Program is the world’s largest privately funded scholarship program.  Students in Rotary's peace programs learn conflict resolution skills. 

Locally, The Rotary Club of Cleveland provides four scholarships on an annual basis to students in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, working through College Now! Greater Cleveland.  Over the years, the Youth Service Committee and the Cleveland Rotary Foundation have provided tens of thousands of dollars for students to attend the college of their choice.
