Jump to Comments

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 six Rotary Peace Centers at leading universities in Argentina, Australia, England, Japan, the United States and Thailand.

The 2012 Academic term deadline is July 1 2011. Applications are available at www.rotary.org

Pay close attention to the language and academic test requirements for each center.
