What is Group Study Exchange (GSE)?

This is a vocational and cultural exchange experience funded by Rotary International Foundation. The team consists of one Rotarian team leader, and four non-Rotarians, aged 25-40. Team member candidates must be U.S. citizens and be employed full-time in a recognized business or profession. Knowledge of language of the country that we are sending a team to is helpful, but not required. They will have 20 hours of orientation and make presentations to area clubs. The exchange normally involves four weeks of very intense visits to the country our District sends a team to, usually in the Spring.

District 6360 exchanges GSE teams with a district in a different country each. Here is a recent history of the countries with whom we have had exchanges:

2007 - Korea

2006 - Belize, Honduras, & Guatemala

2005 - Peru

2004 - Germany

2008 - Philippines.

2009 - Argentina

2010 - Italy

2010 - 11 - Chile

2012 - India

Applications are available on the Rotary International website. Completed applications, signed by the sponsoring club president, should be sent directly to the GSE chair listed below:
