How to Apply:
– Research the curriculum and programmes at each of the Rotary Peace Centers. You will be asked to rank two centers you prefer for the Master’s programme and one center for the certificate programme.
– Submit your application by 15 May. Applications require a résumé, academic and/or professional recommendations, essays, transcripts, social impact plan (certificate only), and test scores (master’s only). All materials must be in English.
– Get endorsed. As part of the application process, you need to connect with a Rotary district and get endorsed. Districts are regionally-based Rotary representatives located throughout the world. You can identify and contact your local Rotary district directly through the application platform. The district will interview you then submit an endorsement decision for your application.
– Engage with Rotary. Use the Club Finder to locate the Rotary club nearest you. Connecting with a club is a great way to learn about Rotary’s work in your community and around the world. Clubs’ recommendations are optional, but strongly recommended as part of your application.
– Await selection results. Email notifications will be sent in November. If you are chosen for a fellowship, you will be told at which Peace Center you will study.
– Apply for admission to the university where your Peace Center is located. Being selected for the fellowship does not mean you have been admitted to the university.
