2010 Rotary Peace Fellow Application Information

Rotary is seeking non-Rotarian professionals interested in expanding their knowledge in international relations, public administration, sustainable development, peace studies and conflict resolution or a related field. Each year, up to 100 Rotary Peace Fellowships (50 master’s degree fellowships and 50 professional development certificate fellowships) are offered on a competitive basis at six prestigious Rotary Centers around the world.

Participants in the master’s degree program gain access to:
• Two years of Rotary-funded graduate study toward a master’s degree at one of our six Rotary Centers
• Training in the root causes of conflict, theories of international relations, and effective models of cooperation, conflict resolution, and negotiation.
• A growing network of committed alumni employed around the world in diplomacy, government, non-governmental organizations and private corporations.

Candidates already working in the field of peace and conflict studies may opt for the three-month professional development certificate program at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, Thailand. 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.

The 2011 Academic term deadline is 1 July 2010. Applications are available at: 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

This Month is World Understanding Month: "Peace is achieved in small increments by people working to understand each other and seek common ground. Stories of small efforts that make a difference usually don't make headlines, but they are central to the unique, community-based peace work Rotarians do each time they meet... and share a meal together."- Ed Futa, RI General Secretary
