Rotary offers Denmark trip

February 01, 2009

Through a program called Group Study Exchange, the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International offers members of the public an opportunity to travel to a foreign country to study how their professions are practiced there.

Teams of four young professionals, each led by a Rotarian, travel to another country to study its professional life, culture and customs.

Applications are being accepted until Feb. 27 by Rotary clubs in the Tri-State area for a team that will visit Denmark from Aug. 29 to Sept. 26. Selected applicants will be interviewed March 21, and the team will have monthly training sessions through August, usually on weekends.

While in Denmark, the team will stay in the homes of Danish Rotarians and make periodic presentations to Danish Rotary clubs. Team members will have the opportunity to meet with members of their professions in Denmark to share and exchange ideas and experiences.

Expenses covered by the program include airfare to and from Copenhagen, Denmark; room and board; and local travel in Denmark. Team members are responsible for their own incidental expenses.

To be eligible to apply, young professionals may be in any field of work and must have been in that field for at least two years. They must be 25 to 40 years old and be a U.S. citizen. Danish language and public speaking skills would be a plus, but are not required. Applicants may not be directly related to a Rotarian, and they must reside or work in this Rotary district.

More information and downloadable application forms are available at www.district7350.org.
