There is a growing demand for well trained men and women around the globe to build national and international cooperation, demonstrate peace and justice throughout their lives, their careers and in service activities. The challenges of the 21st century require people skilled in conflict analysis and resolution, mediation, human rights and diplomacy. The Rotary Peace Fellowship program, now in its 12th year, was developed specifically to meet this very need.
Rotary is seeking non-Rotarian professionals who are keen to expand their knowledge in peace studies, conflict resolution, human rights, international relations, public administration, sustainable development, public health or a related field.
Each year, up to 100 Rotary Peace Fellowships (50 master’s degree fellowships and 50 professional development fellowships) are offered on an internationally competitive basis at Rotary Peace Centers in 7 prestigious universities around the world.
There are two Rotary Peace Fellowships Programs:
TWO YEAR MASTERS DEGREE – Building the Leaders of TOMORROW
Participants in the master’s degree program gain access to:
Up to 2 years of fully funded graduate study at one of our Rotary Peace Centers in the US, the UK, Japan, Australia or Sweden.
Theoretical and practical learning experiences in the root causes of conflict, theories of international relations, and effective models of cooperation, conflict resolution and negotiation including a 3 month Applied Field Experience – AFE;
Funding for round trip travel, tuition and fees, room and board and other limited expenses including AFE averages $US76,000.
This program requires, at minimum, a bachelor’s degree in a related field, & 3 years of relevant work experience
3 MONTHS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT CERTIFICATE – Strengthening the Leaders of TODAY
Designed specifically for mid-career professionals already working in the field of peace and conflict resolution.
The fully funded course offers a mix of theory & practical skills both in the classroom at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok & in on site field study interactions. This program requires, at minimum, a bachelor’s degree in a related field, & 5 years of related work experience.
In addition to excellent leadership skills, candidates must demonstrate a commitment to peace and international understanding through their professional and academic achievements and/or personal and community service activities.
Rotarians: Use your networks to urge employers to tell potential candidates of these generous opportunities for career development: such as non government humanitarian organizations, government departments, religious and service institutions, local universities, police and armed services. Those employers will know how to contact people working both for them and with them.
