Each year, the Rotary Foundation selects a cohort of professionals from around the world to receive a fellowship to study at one of its peace centers.
Through academic training, practice, and global networking opportunities, the Rotary Peace Centers program develops leaders who become catalysts for peace and conflict prevention and resolution. Fellowships cover tuition and fees, room and board, roundtrip transportation, and all internship and field-study expenses.
Each year, the foundation awards up to fifty fellowships for master’s degrees and eighty for certificate studies at premier universities around the world.
1) Master’s Degree Programs — This track lasts fifteen to twenty-four months and includes a two- to three-month field study, which participants design themselves.
2) Professional Development Certificate Program — This track lasts one year and is for experienced peace and development professionals from diverse backgrounds, who gain practical skills needed to promote peace in their communities and around the globe. Fellows complete field studies and also design and carry out a social-change initiative.
