Rotary is a voluntary service organisation and there are no paid employees within the RYE programme and this helps keep the basic student cost to a minimum. Each selected student is “sponsored” by a local New Zealand Rotary Club and in turn is “hosted” overseas by a Rotary Club. There is no upfront application fee for RYE in District 9970.
