The Rotary Peace Fellowship Program 2023-2024 is now accepting applications.
Rotary provides up to 130 fully sponsored fellowships each year to deserving leaders from all across the globe to study at one of their peace centers.
The Rotary Peace Centers program strengthens the ability of peace and development professionals to become effective catalysts for peace via academic training, practice, and worldwide networking opportunities.
The Rotary Peace Centers have educated over 1,500 fellows who currently operate in over 115 countries since the program started in 2002.
Many are leaders in governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), educational and scientific institutions, peacekeeping and law enforcement agencies, and international organizations such as the United Nations and the World Bank.
Master’s Degree Program: Accepted applicants study peace and development challenges with research-informed instruction and a diverse student population in master’s degree programs.
The programs are 15 to 24 months long and involve a two- to three-month field research that participants design.
Professional development certificate program: During this one-year blended learning program, experienced peace and development professionals from all backgrounds learn how to promote peace in their communities and across the world.
Fellows do field research and plan and implement a social change program.
This program is designed for professionals who are currently employed. Upon completion of the program, fellows get a post-graduate credential.
Tuition, fees, housing and board, round-trip transportation, and internship and field-study costs are all covered by the fellowships.
