Rotary Peace Fellowship – 2014
The Rotary Peace Centers program is intended for individuals who have chosen a career in international relations, peace, and conflict resolution to pursue master studies. For example, individuals active in journalism, civil service, non-governmental organisations, diplomacy, mediation work, and the military may be strong candidates for the Rotary Peace Fellowships.
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 can earn either a master’s degree in international relations, public administration, sustainable development, peace studies, conflict resolution, or a related field, or a professional development certificate in peace and conflict resolution. The Rotary Peace Fellowship provides funding for tuition and fees; room and board; round-trip transportation; and internship or field study expenses. Tenure is one to two years.
