Citation For Meritorious Service

The Citation for Meritorious Service recognizes individual Rotarians who have demonstrated outstanding active service to The Rotary Foundation for more than one year.  Examples of eligible service include, but are not limited to service on Foundation committees at the club, district or international level; participation in Foundation grants or programs; and support of Ambassadorial Scholars, Rotary Peace Fellows, Group Study Exchange Teams, and Vocational Training Teams.   Financial contributions to the Foundation, however notable, are not relevant considerations for this award.
