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.

TOEFL/IELTS with good score increases your chances of selection provided that you meet other requirements.
