This is Holly White, handing in her final dissertation earning her a Masters of Arts in Peace and Conflict Resolution from the University of Bradford in December 2017.  Holly is the first Peace Scholar from Newfoundland and Labrador and was sponsored by the Rotary Club of St. John’s Northwest.
Each year, Rotary selects up to 100 professionals from around the world to receive fellowships to study at one of our 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 cover tuition and fees, room and board, round-trip transportation, and all internship and field-study expenses.
February is Peace and Conflict Resolution Month within Rotary. It’s now time to begin preparing for our next applicants. 
Here’s how you and your clubs can become involved:
  • Review the informational flyer about the Peace Fellowship
  • Become familiar with upcoming deadlines for applications.
  • Think about potential applicants and help spread the word in your area.
  • Meet with potential applicants and help with the application process.  Each club can support one applicant.  You may need to conduct an interview process to find the best applicant.
  • Invite previous Peace Fellowship participants to your club meetings or to meet with applicants.
  • Connect with District Scholarship Committee Chair (Jillian Gibson) to learn more.
