Rotary Recruits Future Peace Leaders For Rotary Peace Fellowship
Rotary District 7210 is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service and help to build goodwill and peace in the world.
The Rotary Clubs of District 7210 (Hudson Valley) are recruiting for the Rotary Peace Fellowship, a program that gives up to 100 fellows the opportunity to obtain professional development certificates or master's degrees in Peace and Conflict Resolution at no cost to the recipient.
"Today, there are still far too few mediators who are experienced practitioners in conflict resolution. There is an urgent need to produce another generation of people who can play a mediating role in the future," said Professor Paul Rogers, University of Bradford. "This program is the most significant development in graduate work in conflict resolution in decades."
Launched in 2002, Rotary's Peace Fellowship program provides academic and practical training to prepare scholars for leadership roles in solving conflicts around the world.
Up to 100 fellows are selected every year in a globally competitive process based on personal, academic, and professional achievements. Fellows embark on one to two years of study to earn a master's-level degree or a professional development certificate in peace and conflict studies at one of seven Rotary Peace Centers at leading universities in Sweden, Australia, England, Japan, the United States, Thailand, and Uganda.
To learn more about the program, applicants are encouraged to visit the Rotary Peace Centers website at: rotarypeacecenters@
