About the Fellowship
Each year, Rotary funds some of the world’s most dedicated and brightest professionals to study at Rotary Peace Centres. Through training, study, and practice, Rotary Peace Fellows become leaders and catalysts for peace and conflict resolution; many go on to careers in national governments, NGOs, the military, law enforcement, and international organizations like the United Nations and World Bank. Two types of Fellowships are available: The Master’s degree fellowship and The Professional Development Certificate.
Each year, Rotary selects up to 100 individuals from around the world to receive fully funded academic fellowships at one of our peace centres.
These fellowships cover tuition and fees, room and board, round-trip transportation, and all internship and field-study expenses.
Master’s Degree Fellowship: 15-24 Months Professional Development Certificate: 3 Months
