Rotary Peace Fellowship

The Rotary Peace Centers program is a dynamic and ambitious project of The Rotary Foundation. Rotary Peace Fellows are qualified professionals who have been nominated and accepted to attend a special Rotary Peace Centers Training Fellowship program (associated with peace center programs in one of seven universities, located in six countries).

In a decade, the Rotary Peace Centers have trained more than 900 Rotary Peace Fellows who are now working throughout the world in a wide range of occupations and positions of authority to serve the goal of building peace. In addition to contributing to peace as individuals, these dedicated fellows are part of an expanding global network of Rotary alumni whose influence grows exponentially with each graduating class.
