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 100 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 seven Rotary Peace Centers at leading universities in Argentina, Australia, England, Japan, Sweden, 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 2012 Academic term deadline is 1 July 2011. Applications are available at: www.rotary.org/rotarycenters. Please pay close attention to the language and academic test requirements for each center.

Rotary is Service, which means that any partnership with other organization follow the way of a project financially support in common.

If you have Rotary Clubs in your area, call the club's President or the Secretary and explain your needs, written project in hands. May be you will find a Club responding to your request.

As each Rotary Clubs is autonomous by its administration and approval, No one can help from outside the Club .

Good luck

Thank you very much Rotary International for your novel project to produce sound human resource for sustainable peace i the world. It has motivated me to apply. Thank you

Download the publication 083En above and look on page 4, RPC Application requirements.

On the other side, if the applicant can provide letters informing Rotary Peace Center Department rotarycenters@rotary.org that his secondary education was taught primarily in English then yes, we can waive the TOEFL requirement. Hope I have answered to your question?

Question!

Are there any Rotary clubs in Somalia?

I haven't heard any, who can help? Please

There is no Rotary Club in Somalia, while the country was opened for extension. May be you should directed yourself to the nearest Rotary country or send an email with your inquiries to the Rotary International staff in charge of the Peace department rotarycenters@rotary.org . Good Luck.

 Dear Ndansi,

TOEFL/IELTS with good score increases your chances of selection provided that you meet other requirements. Since English tests score will be sought later by assigned university and probably also by concerning immigration for visa purposes, it is recommended to submit your application together with English tests score and required documents.  

When I was in the Master's Program in Peace and Justice Studies at the University of San Diego in 2002-2003, the Rotary Scholars were a wonderful resource for all the students in the program, and the faculty as well, because of their experiences in their own countries and organizations. The mature outlook and international perspective that they added to the program bridged the gap between theory and practice in peacebuilding. Thank you Rotary, for making their participation possible -- it benefitted the Rotary Fellows, their fellow students, and is now benefiting the communities that they have returned to as even more prepared peacebuilders.

Thank you for your testimonial as RPC Alumnus.

Please check http://www.internationalpeaceandconflict.org/main/search/search?q=r... , I hope that you have already joined the group
