Peace Scholars

Rotary World Peace Fellows are leaders promoting national and international cooperation, peace, and the successful resolution of conflict throughout their lives, in their careers, and through service activities. Fellows can earn either a master’s degree in international relations, public administration, sustainable development, peace studies, conflict resolution, or a related field, or a professional development certificate in peace and conflict resolution. Each year, up to 110 Rotary World Peace Fellowships (60 master’s degree fellowships and 50 professional development certificate fellowships) are offered on a competitive basis at seven Rotary Centers, which operate in partnership with eight leading universities (centers offer master’s degree unless noted otherwise):

  • Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand (professional development center)
  • Duke University and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA
  • International Christian University, Tokyo, Japan
  • Universidad del Salvador, Buenos Aires, Argentina
  • University of Bradford, West Yorkshire, England
  • University of California, Berkeley, USA (NOTE: The Rotary Foundation Trustees will no longer be accepting applications for this program after the 2009-11 class.)
  • University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia

Fellows are chosen from countries and cultures around the globe based on their ability to have a significant, positive impact on world peace and conflict resolution during their careers.
