Overview

Rotary Peace Fellows are leaders promoting national and international cooperation, peace, and the successful resolution of conflict throughout their lives, in their careers, and through service activities.

The Rotary Peace Centers of The Rotary Foundation of Rotary
International is currently recruiting for applicants for the 2013 Rotary Peace Fellowship. Applications are due 1 July 2012. Over the past ten years, Rotary Peace Centers has provided over 600 future peace leaders with peace and conflict resolution education and field
experience. Our alumni work all over the world with organization ranging from grassroots peace initiatives in Africa to the United Nations. In an effort to reach out to more qualified candidates all over the world, Rotary is reaching out peace-related organizations and asking them to post our fellowship opportunity to their listserves or
newsletters.

The Rotary Foundation is now accepting applications for the world-competitive Rotary Peace Fellowship. The fellowship provides academic and practical training to prepare scholars for leadership roles in solving conflicts around the world. Up to 110 fellows are selected every year in a globally competitive process based on personal, academic, and professional achievements. Fellows earn a
master's-level degree or a professional development certificate in peace and conflict studies at one of six Rotary Peace Centers at leading universities in Australia, England, Japan, the United State, Sweden and Thailand.
