ROTARY PEACE FELLOWSHIPS (2016)
The Rotary Centers for International Studies in peace and conflict resolution is one of TRF’s newest Educational Programs initiatives and a major educational priority for achieving the Foundation’s mission of world understanding and peace. Each year, up to 60 Rotary World Peace Fellows are selected on a world-competitive basis in a 15 - 24 month graduate program leading to a U.S. master’s degree or equivalent in international relations, peace studies, and conflict resolution. The program is offered at five (5) universities around the world. The scholarship is valued at approximately $65,000.
A Professional Development Certificate Program is available to individuals with at least 5 years experience in various industries and professions that will provide them with the tools they need to foster peace and conflict resolution in their fields. The program is approximately three-months held at the Rotary Center for Peace and Conflict Studies at Chulalongkorn University (Bangkok, Thailand).
Studies for these programs will begin in Fall, 2016.
