Nottingham Roosevelt Memorial Travelling Scholarship

Nottingham Roosevelt Memorial Travelling Scholarship

Evening all,

Please see note below from Joe Fish (Notts CCC) with regards to the Nottingham Roosevelt Memorial Travelling Scholarship.

Hi All,

Something a little different from me today, not cricket related if you can believe it!

The Nottingham Roosevelt Memorial Travelling Scholarship funds 21-35 year olds the opportunity to go over to America for six weeks on a cultural learning experience that they can bring back home to Nottinghamshire with a lasting impact.

All of the information is available in the graphic or via the links below.

They are trying to spread the word within community organisations which may have lots of people within this age range. That being said it may be worth sharing this email with the 21-35 year olds within your clubs to see if there is any interest?

Kind regardsJoe
