Rotary Peace Fellowship Applications Are Now Open 

Applications for the 2022 Rotary Peace Fellowship are open!  Rotarians and local clubs are encouraged to promote the fellowship and share information with potential candidates. 

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. 

Fellows earn either a master’s degree or a certificate in peace and development studies at one of the seven Rotary Peace Centers, located at leading universities around the world. 

Strong candidates for this competitive fellowship will have solid work experience, a bachelor’s degree, demonstrated leadership skills and a strong commitment to cross-cultural understanding and peace. 

Candidates have until 15 May to submit online applications to The Rotary Foundation. Information about the program and applicant qualifications is available here.  

Rotary has created a legacy of more than 1,400 fellows now working for change in over 115 countries since the program began in 2002. 

The District Rotary Peace Fellowship Subcommittee will assist candidates with the application process. Candidates endorsed by the District are forwarded to Rotary International for consideration. There is no cost to clubs or the district for participation in the fellowship program.

Please contact Steve Shepelwich, District Rotary Peace Fellowship Subcommittee Chair, at for more information on the fellowships, resources for candidates and how to get involved.
