Group Study Exchange (GSE)

Owner:District Group Study Exchange committee

The Group Study Exchange (GSE) program is a unique cultural and vocational exchange opportunity for business and professional men and women in their initial years of professional life. Rotary districts in different countries are paired to send and receive professional study groups of four team members and one Rotarian team leader to travel for approximately four weeks, staying in the homes of Rotarians when possible.
Launched in 1965 by the Rotary Foundation, this dynamic program has built a successful track record at the personal, community, and international level. With good planning, a goal-driven itinerary, and active participation of dedicated Rotarians, a GSE can be an exceptional educational experience for both the visiting GSE team and local Rotarians.  Since 2015, this opportunity is now solely funded by Rotary districts, who choose to carry on this wonderful and inspiring tradition.
