Every year, Rotary selects some of the world’s brightest and most dedicated professionals to study at seven Rotary Peace Centers around the world. Our more than 1,400 program alumni work in over 115 countries and serve as leaders in governments and nongovernmental organizations, education and research, law enforcement and the military, as well as in international organizations dedicated to peace.
Up to 130 students per year receive fully funded fellowships to pursue studies in peace and development. The fellowships pay for tuition and fees, room and board, round-trip transportation, and all internship and field study expenses for either a master’s degree or a professional development certificate. The centers, hosted by premier universities around the world, provide customized studies and offer field-based learning opportunities.
The fellowship opened up my thinking, created new pathways, provided a new set of tools, and most important, opened up a whole new network of people and resources.Charlie Allen, Rotary Peace Fellow (Chula, 2010) and director of partnerships at the Institute for Economics and Peace
