Rotary International's - "World Peace Fellowships"
RI Alternate Representative to the United Nations, Sylvan Barnet, spoke about Rotary World Peace Fellows who are graduates of the Rotary Centers for International Studies In Peace and Conflict Resolution Program. These scholars will be a part of tomorrow’s solution in promoting greater tolerance and cooperation among people worldwide. Rotary World Peace Fellows, who are chosen from a wide variety of countries, can help future leaders advance knowledge and understanding.
The Rotary World Peace Centers are located in eight leading universities around the world and selected scholars generally study at a Master’s level program in conflict resolution, peace studies, international relations, and other related disciplines.
The eight universities that have partnered with Rotary International are:
• Duke University and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA
• Sciences Po, Paris, France
• University of Bradford, West Yorkshire, England
• University of Queensland, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
• International Christian University, Tokyo, Japan
• Universidad del Salvador, Buenos Aires, Argentina
• University of California, Berkeley, California, USA
Each Rotary district may submit one candidate for competition in the worldwide selection process for up to 60 Rotary World Peace Fellowships offered annually. All Rotary clubs are encouraged to recruit qualified candidates to apply for the Fellowship and to nominate a candidate for the competition. Rotary Foundation Scholarships for International Understanding are for one year of study in any country that has Rotary Clubs.
