August 09, 2007

Rotary District 7350 is accepting applications for a one-month group study exchange in Tunisia. Applications will be accepted until Aug. 24, according to a Rotary press release.

Rotary clubs in Hagerstown, Pennsylvania and in the Eastern Pandhandle of West Virginia belong to District 7350.

Participants in the one-month professional development program will travel to Tunisia to learn how their craft is practiced in another country. The goal of the program is to build bridges between countries and to foster greater international understanding and friendship.

The exchange will take place during the spring of 2008. The trip is open to any professional, who wants to learn more about their profession in an Arabic country where Islam is the dominant religion and both French and Arabic are spoken, according to the release.

Applicants must be U.S. citizens, 25 to 40 years of age, who live in the Rotary district area. Applicants must have worked full-time in a recognized profession for a minimum of two years and may not be a Rotarian or the spouse or family member of a Rotarian, according to the release. People selected for the trip will receive funding for travel overseas and within Tunisia, and accommodations will be provided. Insurance and incidentals must be provided by the applicants who are selected.
