The six areas of focus are: Water and sanitation, Disease prevention and treatment, Peace and conflict resolution, Economic and community development, Education and literacy, Maternal and child health.
 
The amount and number of district grant scholarships are determined by the regional scholarship committees.  The global grant scholarship is a $30,000 scholarship and will be awarded to one student in the district each year.  Funding for these scholarships come from The Rotary Foundation and Rotary District 5440.  Club funds are not required but can be used to supplement the Rotary Foundation and District 5440 funding.
