The Application Process

The application process is easy:


Download the PDF initial application form here or the word version here.


Return it with all the necessary information by 1st December 2024. All forms must be typed, if you have any issues please contact us.


Don't forget to include your latest school report and school results and a couple character references who think you're exceptional.


We receive lots of applications each year, so ensure you put your best foot forward.


You'll need to write 200 words on your chosen country and why so suggest you do a little research on your favourite country!


You also need to write 200 words on Rotary International and what makes Rotary so cool, so get googling, check out your local club or follow a NZ club on facebook to learn more. Chances are you already know us, cos we've been 'Doing Good in the World' for over 100 years!

Remember this is your exchange so ensure you write your application yourself!


PS: Even if you haven't learn a second language we're still keen to hear from you! As long as you're willing to learn, we're willing to see your outstanding application!
