Rotary Offers Fellowship for Peace and Conflict Resolution Study

Rotary Clubs in our area are seeking candidates for a post-graduate fellowship to study abroad in the area of peace and conflict resolution. The Rotary International World Peace Fellowship, which culminates in a master’s degree, is now available for the academic years 2013-2015 at one of six universities in England, Japan, Sweden, Australia, Thailand or Argentina.

Applicants should have a baccalaureate degree and the training and background to gain admission to a graduate program at one of the Rotary Center University partners.  The applicant should also have a minimum of three years’ work experience in a related field at the time of application, as well as proficiency in more than one language.  They should possess excellent leadership skills and a demonstrated commitment to peace and international understanding.

The Fellowship is competitive, and the funding covers tuition and fees, a standard room and board stipend, transportation, contingency expenses, and an applied field experience.  The duration of the program is two years.
