What is the Rotary Peace Fellowship Program?
The Rotary Peace Fellowship program is a fully funded master’s degree or certificate in peace and conflict studies. Every year, 100 individuals are selected to receive a generous award from The Rotary Foundation that funds tuition, living expenses, international field experience, and research/conference opportunities at one of the Rotary Peace Centers, located within seven leading universities around the world.
Studying at a Rotary Peace Center will open the door to a variety of careers, such as foreign policy, human rights, international law, and development and humanitarian action. It’s where you will build a global network with peace fellows and Rotarians from all over the world, while gaining new skills in conflict resolution, cross-cultural awareness, negotiation, peace and conflict research.
The more than 1,100 program alumni are working as change agents for peace in over 100 countries with national governments, NGOs, United Nations agencies, and other entities. And you could be one of them.
