Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar
Dr Yuan-Ming Tsai
On 29 September 2016 Dr Yuan-Ming Tsai arrived in Leeds from Taiwan with his wife, Na Na Lo and their 18 month old daughter Ruei Ruei, to be welcomed by Philip Aindow on behalf of the Rotary Club of Roundhay.
Ming has the benefit of a Rotary Global Grant which funds his place on a PhD research programme at the Leeds University School of Medicine. He is sponsored by his home club, SanHsia BeiDa Elite Rotary Club, Taiwan, and our club has undertaken to support him while he is in Leeds. He starts his course immediately, and is looking for a city centre flat in which to stay.
We look forward to welcoming him at our club, and showing his young family what Leeds has to offer. They’ve already happily sampled the cuisine chez Aindow in Shadwell: good old roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, of course.
FACTS ABOUT ROTARY SCHOLARSHIPS
The Rotary Foundation has a rich history of funding scholarships for undergraduate and graduate study in a wide range of academic fields. Clubs and districts can create their own scholarships and fund them with district grants for any level of studies or with global grants for graduate studies in an area of focus. Global grants support scholarships for graduate students studying abroad in one of the six areas of focus. Scholarships range from one to four years and therefore can include an entire degree program. Prospective scholars must show proof of admission to the chosen university before the grant will be approved. Global grant scholars are expected to participate in club or district activities before, during, and after the scholarship.
