The Rotary Club of Hinesville hosted Susan Kleine of the Skidaway Club, Savannah, who shared information about GRSP.
Georgia Rotary Student Program has been sponsored by Georgia Rotarians since 1946 to promote world peace through understanding by offering scholarships to international students for a year of study in Georgia colleges and universities. Georgia clubs sponsor students who are recommended by a Rotary Club in their home country. The students are “adopted” by a Georgia host family.
The Hinesville Club is helping sponsor David Probst for the 2017-18 academic year. Probst currently attends Karlsruher Institute of Technology in Germany, majoring as a mechanical engineer. When he arrives, he will reside on campus at Armstrong State in Savannah.
GRSP is a scholarship program, not an exchange.
Each year, about 60 students from all over the world make friends in the United States and other nations and learn about differing cultures and lifestyles.
