Rotary District 6780 Global Grant Scholar Winner Continues Studies Abroad

  • Friday, March 30, 2018
Jacob Wirz, Rotary District 6780's Global Grant Scholar, is pursuing a master's degree in global governance and diplomacy at the University of Oxford. There, his coursework focuses on the intersection of diplomacy and international law, while his independent research studies the effects of public diplomacy in the international arena.

"Upon completion of his studies, Jacob will continue his service in the U.S. Navy, where he will be stationed on the USS Porter in Rota, Spain. Eventually, he hopes to use the knowledge gained through the Rotary experience to work to promote peace and stability by minimizing the possibilities of diplomatic miscalculation," officials said.

At Oxford, Jacob is hosted by Rotary District 1090 and the Rotary Club of Eynsham, where he presented at one of the biweekly meetings.

Jacob was awarded the District 6780 2017-2018 Global Grant scholarship and is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Chattanooga Hamilton Place.
