Each year, Rotary selects up to 100 professionals from around the world to receive fellowships to study at one of Rotary's peace centers. Through academic training, practice, and global networking opportunities, the Rotary Peace Fellowship develops leaders who become catalysts for peace and conflict prevention and resolution. These fellowships (50 master's degrees for 15-24 months and 50 certificate studies of 3 months plus 2-3 weeks of field study ) cover tuition and fees, room and board, round-trip transportation, and all internship and field-study expenses.

Tickets will be drawn on May 27th at the District Conference in St. John's. The signed jersey will be sent to the winner in time to attend the Rotary International Convention in Toronto and, in particular, the Beyond Borders dinner at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto on Sunday June 24th.

You will even get a certificate of completion to give your employer to get the day off as professional development.
 
The 2018 District Conference is six weeks away and the excitement is building. Registration numbers show a great turnout from all around our District. You won't want to miss the opportunity to "Join Leaders - Exchange Ideas - Take Action!"
 
And don't forget to wear something white on Saturday 's "White- Out" to show support for Rotary's focus on promoting "Peace and Conflict Resolution!"
