One of the more interesting but relatively little-known Rotary programs are the Peace Fellowships offered each year in Peace and Conflict Resolution, one of the six Causes we focus on as Rotarians.
Each year, Rotary fully funds 100 of the world's brightest and most dedicated non-Rotarian leaders to study at Rotary Peace Centers embedded in universities around the world. If you are someone you know is interested in the program, we'd be glad to talk to you!

Rotary Peace Fellows are social change leaders who are chosen for their ability to have a significant, positive impact on world peace throughout their careers. 50 fellowships are offered to 18 month Master's programs to universities around the world, and 50 fellowships to the 3-month Certificate program offered at a university in Thailand. 


Applications for the Rotary Peace Fellowships, which are available only to non-Rotarians, will be accepted by January 1st, 2020 through May 31st, 2020. For more information and to start an application, see
