Rotary Peace Fellowship Program 2022-23: Apply by 15th May 2021

About the Peace Fellowship

Their Approach

They see peace not as an abstract concept but as a living, dynamic expression of human development. Peacebuilding is a cornerstone of Rotary’s mission as a humanitarian service organization, and it is one of their six areas of focus – the channels of activity through which the members make their mark on the world.

The programs, grants, and fellowships focus on creating environments where peace can be built and maintained. Rotary believes that if concerned citizens work together to create peace locally, lasting change can happen globally.

How Does the Fellowship Work?

Each year, Rotary awards up to 130 fully-funded fellowships for dedicated leaders from around the world to study at one of their peace centers.

Through academic training, practice, and global networking opportunities, the Rotary Peace Centers program develops the capacity of peace and development professionals or practitioners to become experienced and effective catalysts for peace.

Since the program began in 2002, the Rotary Peace Centers have trained more than 1,400 fellows who now work in more than 115 countries. Many serve as leaders in governments, NGOs, the military, education, law enforcement, and international organizations like the United Nations and the World Bank.
