The Rotary Peace Centers equip future world and community leaders with the professional training and experience necessary to prevent and resolve conflict. Make a one-time or recurring gift to help create a world where peace is possible.


Promoting Peace through International Study and Contact

The Rotary Peace Centers program enables peace fellows to pursue a master’s degree or professional development certificate in international studies, peace studies, conflict resolution, or a related field. Rotary Peace Fellowships pay for transportation, tuition, qualified internships, room and board, and related expenses.

The Rotary Foundation has integrated all of its peace education initiatives. Rotary’s World Peace Fellowships for master’s degree and professional development certificate study have been consolidated into one program. This change allows applicants to apply simultaneously for both options by including all seven Rotary Centers below in their preferred options:

  • Rotary Center at Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand (professional development certificate)
  • Rotary Center at Duke University and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA (master’s degree)
  • Rotary Center at International Christian University, Tokyo, Japan (master’s degree)
  • Rotary Center at the University of Bradford, West Yorkshire, England (master’s degree)
  • Rotary Center at Uppsala University, Sweden (master’s degree program)
  • Rotary Center at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia (master’s degree)

Part of this integration is the adjustment of the application and selection schedule for the professional development option. The Rotary Center at Chulalongkorn University will continue to offer two sessions of training each year from January-April and June-August. Applications for both sessions will now be due at the same time as applications for the master’s degree option on 1 July with selection taking place one time each year for the master’s degree fellows as well as both sessions of professional development fellows. More integration news will be released as it becomes available, along with new application forms and promotional materials.
