WHAT ARE THE ROTARY PEACE FELLOWSHIPS?
Each year, Rotary awards up to 130 fully funded fellowships for dedicated leaders to study at Rotary Peace Centers at universities around the world
.
Through academic training, practice, and global networking opportunities, these professionals develop their capacity to become effective catalysts for peace. Rotary Peace Fellows earn either master’s degrees or professional development certificates in subjects related to peace and development.
 
Since 2002, the Rotary Peace Centers have trained more than 1,500 fellows who work in over 115 countries in education, in government roles, and at international organizations.
 
Rotary members like you can shape the next generation of peace leaders by identifying and interviewing potential candidates.
Learn more about the Rotary Peace Fellowships and the Rotary Peace Centers at Rotary.org.
