Rotary World Peace Fellowships

    
Rotary World Peace Fellowships

Rotary Centers provide Rotary World Peace Fellows with the opportunity to pursue a master’s degree in conflict resolution, peace studies, international relations, and related areas.
Each year, up to 60 Rotary World Peace Fellowships are offered on a competitive basis at six Rotary Centers, which operate in partnership with seven leading universities:

Duke University and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA (joint Rotary Center)
International Christian University, Tokyo, Japan
Universidad del Salvador, Buenos Aires, Argentina
University of Bradford, West Yorkshire, England
University of California, Berkeley, USA
University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia

Coursework at the Rotary Centers focuses on preventing and resolving conflict by addressing its root causes ― for example, responding to hunger with food security, disease with health care, illiteracy with education, poverty with sustainable development, and environmental degradation with conservation. Fellows put classroom lessons into practice through an applied field experience, when they work with a variety of governmental and nongovernmental organizations worldwide.

The fellows are chosen from countries and cultures around the globe based on their potential as leaders in government, business, education, media, and other professional areas. Learn more about program eligibility and deadlines .

Rotary Centers alumni have demonstrated their ability to further global understanding and peace in their work for United Nations agencies, the World Bank, European Parliament, the Organization of American States, and other nongovernmental organizations, along with national governments and international businesses.
