Peace Fellow Scholars

Each year, Rotary selects individuals from around the world to receive fully funded academic fellowships at one of its peace centers. These fellowships cover tuition and fees, room and board, round-trip transportation and all internship/field study expenses. Two types of peace fellowships are available.


Master’s Degree

Rotary offers master’s degree fellowships at premier universities in fields related to peace and conflict resolution and prevention. Programs last 15­–24 months and require a practical internship of two to three months during the academic break. Each year Rotary awards up to 50 master’s fellowships from these institutions:

  • Duke University and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, US
  • International Christian University, Japan
  • University of Bradford, UK
  • University of Queensland, Australia
  • Uppsala University, Sweden

Professional Development Certificate

For those with more extensive experience in peace-related fields, Rotary offers a three-month program in peace and conflict resolution at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, Thailand. Rotary awards up to 50 certificates each year.
