Now Accepting Applications for the Rotary Peace Fellowship!

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, Sweden, Japan, the United States and Thailand.

 

Master’s Degree Option

  • “Building the leaders of tomorrow”
  • 15-24 months of Rotary-funded graduate study toward a master’s degree at one of our five Rotary Centers
  • Training in the root causes of conflict, theories of international relations, and effective models of cooperation, conflict resolution, and negotiation including course work and applied field experience
  • A growing network of committed alumni employed around the world in diplomacy, government, non-governmental organizations and private corporations.

 

Professional Certificate Option

  • “Strengthening the leaders of today”
  • 3 month professional development certificate program
  • Designed specifically for candidates already working in the field of peace and conflict studies to further their understanding of conflict resolution
  • Theoretical foundational knowledge during 8 weeks in the classroom and practical experience during 2-3 week on site fieldwork

 

Both programs require, at minimum, a bachelor’s degree in a related field; 3 years of relevant work experience and proficiency in a 2nd language for the MA program and 5 years for the professional development certificate and proficiency in English.

 

The 2013 Academic term deadline is 1 July 2012. Applications are available at: www.rotary.org/rotarycenters. Please pay close attention to the language and academic test requirements for each center.

 

All Rotary Peace Fellowship applications need the endorsement of your local Rotary district. You can find your nearest local Rotary Club by using the Club Locator tool on the Rotary International web site at http://www.rotary.org/en/AboutUs/SiteTools/ClubLocator/Pages/ridefa....

 

Please email niki.fritz(at)rotary.org with questions.

I encourage people to apply, am a Rotary peace fellow on the Professional certificate course,its informative, interactive and hands on. We have renowned speakers from all over the world besides the local and international study tours. The staff is very supportive and understanding. Its another "home"away from home. Welcome to the Rotary Peace center at the Chulalongkorn University, and you will experience what am talking about.

I have learned Conflict analysis in a different dimension, cultural competency, Mediation, negotiation, open space and appreciative inquiry; these are methods and approaches to conflict Resolution. Additionally Non violence, post -war recover, peace journalism, trauma and healing and many more to come.

We are 23 in our class drawn from 15 countries of the world, with different educational and work experiences to enrich and complement each other. Apply like yesterday.....

Hi Jane,

It is really interesting to know that you are already one of the participants in this programmee. I really want to apply but is being discouraged by the responses one got from such ventures in the past.  Now that you are involved, please kindly assist me with the technical aspects of their expectations of my application so that my failure does not start from there. Hoping to hear from you.

Many thanks

Hi Dr. Okafor, sorry for replying this late, two weeks ago were rather too busy for me. Just came back yesterday from our international study tour in Nepal where we visited Kathmandu, the capital city and Pokhra.

Regarding technical aspects please write to Niki. Fritz@rotary.org and she will get back to you promptly. You may as well write to the deputy director of the Rotary peace center at Chulalongkorn University through jenn@rotarychula.org. Try to be specific in what you mean by technical aspects when writing them.

Dont be discouraged.All the best.

That is good news Murutu, am happy for you.

was a course participant in one of your programs in Nakuru.

Tell us how to go about it and especially getting a club to assist.

Mwaura

Hi Mwaura,

You need to fill the form, get people to recommend you and get a rotary club to endorse you.

You don`t have to be a Rotarian to be endorsed. In Nakuru for instance there are two Rotary clubs you need to find out where they meet and present yourself.

My case was slightly different, i went to Kisumu and later Nakuru with little success then my predecessor wrote to the Program Assistant at the Rotary International Headquarters in Evanston and she shared my c.v with a few rotary clubs in America. Luckily one of them, from Florida set up a skype interview with me and they endorsed me. My  predecessor was endorsed from Oregon. We have a Ghanian Peace fellow who wrote to Niki Fritz after encountering hitches along the way and was endorsed from Chicago.

Therefore Mwaura there is always a way out. You only need to abide by the timeline of 1st of July, 2012.

Hello Dear Jane,

Thanks for your ensirpiring messege. i am Human rightrs& peace practitioner, working in and from Afghanistan. So, i am wondering if you let me know the nearest club to my country and also some details for Rortraydegree fellowship. thank you in advance... 

Hi Hasrat,

I have no idea to your nearest club.I advised Mwaura on the nearest clubs because i come from Kenya and my home is in Nakuru.Fortunately in this session we have someone from Afghanistan. His name is Imal Momand and he can be reached through imal.momand@yahoo.com, he is better placed to advise on this.

Please email niki.fritz@rotary.org with questions for the rotary degree fellowship.

Best wishes.
