Purpose of the Leo-Lion Cultural Exchange Ambassador Scholarship

The purpose of the Leo-Lion Cultural Exchange Ambassador Scholarship is to provide Leo-Lion members with financial support to *attend a constitutional area (CA) Lions forum in a region of the world different from their own.

* The top priority of Lions Clubs International is the safety of all our members. Although Lions forums may proceed, new COVID-19-related travel rules and restrictions continue to be developed to ensure safe travel and socialization. This may include closing borders to travelers in and out of certain countries and regions, or canceling events. Applicants should check with their country’s travel authority frequently for updates.

Check out the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website for up-to-date information. You can also sign up for automatic notifications when travel restrictions change.

Upon receiving confirmation from a CA Lions forum planning committee that their in-person forum has been canceled, Lions Clubs International will notify the selected Leo-Lion cultural ambassador assigned to that CA forum.

This scholarship opportunity does not apply to virtual forums.

This application does not guarantee participation or funding to attend any CA forum.
