Each year, Rotary awards up to 130 fully funded fellowships for dedicated leaders from around the world to study at one of our 8 peace centers.  The application process is February 1 – May 15.  There is no cost to the applicant, nor the Rotary club or District
Since the program began in 2002, the Rotary Peace Centers have trained more than 1,400 fellows who now work in more than 115 countries. Many serve as leaders in education, business, trade, research, law, journalism, governments, NGOs, the military, education, police and law enforcement, and international organizations like the United Nations and the World Bank.
Hopefully, you know someone personally, or through your network you know others who may know others interested in applying for the Rotary Peace Fellowship. Applicants can be working here in Arizona, or anywhere else in the USA, or the world.
Visit the D5495 Website and click on “Resources” tab. Then click on the “Peacebuilding Resources” tab and you will see 6 helpful links under “Peace Fellowships/Peace Centers.” Contact details are there for any questions or assistance you may need.  We will be glad to help!
A Power Point Presentation is available to all D5495 Rotary Clubs and is less than 10 minutes duration.  Three members of the D5495 Peace Fellowships committee will be glad to make this presentation to your club via Zoom.
