130 ROTARY PEACE SCHOLARSHIPS IN 2024

DEADLINE: 15 MAY 2024


The fully funded Rotary Peace Fellowship, which covers tuition and living expenses, increases the capacity of existing leaders to prevent and resolve conflict by offering academic training, field experience, and professional networking. Rotary Peace Fellows are selected every year in a globally competitive process based on personal, academic, and professional achievements. Fellows earn either a master’s degree or a post-graduate diploma in peace and development studies at one of the Rotary Peace Centers located at leading universities around the world.


Each year, Rotary awards fully funded fellowships for dedicated leaders from around the world to study at one of their peace centres. Through academic training, practice, and global networking opportunities, the Rotary Peace Centers program develops the capacity of peace and development professionals to become effective catalysts for peace.
