Rotary Peace Fellowships

RI Peace Fellowships Through a worldwide, competitive process, this program awards full fellowships to up to 100 Rotary World Peace Fellows each year.  The fellows study at the six Rotary Centers based at leading universities in five countries. 

Qualified applicants must possess an undergraduate degree, have a minimum three years of professional experience at international agencies such as the United Nations, governments, non-governmental organizations, businesses or academic institutions; and demonstrate a commitment to peace and international understanding through their volunteer, academic, and professional achievements.

The Rotary Centers for International Studies are located on the following campuses:

  • International Christian University, Japan;
  • Universidad del Salvador, Argentina;
  • University of Bradford, the United Kingdom (UK);
  • the University of Queensland, Australia; and - in a shared arrangement - Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, N.C. 

In addition to the two-year program, the Rotary Center at Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand, offers an intensive, three-month course aimed at mid-level professionals in governments, non-governmental organizations, and international industry.
