Rotary Peace Fellows are leaders promoting national and international cooperation, peace, and the successful resolution of conflict throughout their lives, in their careers, and through service activities. Fellows earn a master’s degree in international relations, sustainable development, peace studies, conflict resolution, or a professional development certificate in peace and conflict studies.

The Rotary Centers for International Studies in peace and conflict resolution program supports the mission of The Rotary Foundation to further world understanding and peace.

The purpose of the Rotary Peace Centers program is to

• Support and advance research, teaching, publication, and practical field experience on issues of peace, goodwill, causes of conflict, and world understanding
• Inspire people to work for a culture of peace and tolerance while enhancing their capacity, knowledge, and skill by generating interaction between practitioners and academics
• Provide advanced international education opportunities in the area of peace and conflict resolution
• Provide a means for The Rotary Foundation and Rotarians to increase their effectiveness in promoting greater tolerance and cooperation among peoples, leading to world understanding and peace

The Rotary Peace Centers program is intended for individuals who have chosen a career related to international relations, peace, and conflict resolution, who already have work experience in these areas, and who have real potential to positively impact our world. Candidates should consider these objectives carefully before applying and should be prepared to explain in their written statement and interviews how they would support these program objectives. In particular, candidates should demonstrate a commitment to community or international humanitarian service, and working for peace.

Applicants can choose from either the master’s degree OR the professional development certificate program. Candidates will not be considered for both programs

Rotary Peace Fellowships fund either master’s degree or professional development certificate study at one of the six Rotary Peace Centers for International Studies in peace and conflict resolution at seven universities worldwide.

Fellowship funding includes

• Tuition and fees
• Room and board
• Round-trip transportation
• Internship (master’s degree) or field study expenses
(professional development certificate)

General eligibility

Rotary Peace Fellowship applicants should have
• A strong commitment to international understanding and peace demonstrated through their professional and academic achievements and personal and community service activities
• A bachelor’s degree or equivalent in a related field with strong grades at the time of application
• Minimum five years’ relevant work experience with current full-time employment in a mid- to upper-level position for the certificate program
• Minimum three years’ combined paid or unpaid full-time relevant work experience for the master’s degree program
