Promoting peace is one of Rotary’s main causes. The fully funded Rotary Peace Fellowship, which covers tuition and living expenses, increases the capacity of existing leaders to prevent and resolve conflict by offering academic training, field experience, and professional networking.

Up to 130 fellows are selected every year in a globally competitive process based on personal, academic, and professional achievements. Fellows earn either a master’s degree or a certificate in peace and development studies at one of the seven Rotary Peace Centers, located at leading universities around the world.

Over 1,400 program alumni are working in more than 115 countries as leaders in national governments, nongovernmental organizations, education and research, law enforcement, and international organizations such as the United Nations.  For additional information please contact Chuck Root at chuckroot1112@gmail.com or click here for more details.
