Peace & Conflict Prevention/Resolution
Each year, Rotary selects up to 100 professionals from around the world to receive fellowships to study at one of Rotary’s peace centres.
Through academic training, practice, and global networking opportunities, the Rotary Peace Centres program develops leaders who become catalysts for peace and conflict prevention and resolution. These fellowships cover tuition and fees, room and board, round-trip transportation, and all internship and field-study expenses.
In just over a decade, the Rotary Peace Centres have trained more than 1,000 fellows for careers in peacebuilding. Many of them are serving as leaders at international organizations or have started their own foundations and are working in over 100 countries
