The Rotary Foundation Peace Fellowship 2018-2020 offers 60 individuals committed to peace and conflict resolution the opportunity to earn a two-year master’s level degree in international studies, peace studies and conflict resolution at one of the Rotary Centre's University partners located in the United States, Japan, England, Australia or Sweden. Rotary has contracted with five institutions worldwide to provide this valuable training. In order for a candidate to be a qualified applicant, the candidate must have the endorsement of our district. (The Rotary Foundation must receive the final application, endorsed by District 7010, by July 1, 2017.)
 
Information about the 2018-20 Peace Fellowship Application Process, the Peace Centres, eligibility, etc. can be found at https://my.rotary.org/en/peace-fellowship-application . This is the major portal for people interested in pursuing this prestigious fellowship. Persons interested in applying are encouraged to read the material at this site including participating in the webinars and watching the videos.
 
The Peace Fellowship is a highly sought after award. An exemplary application should "shine a light" on the candidate’s experience, aspirations and support for the ideals of Rotary and the pursuit of peace and global understanding.
 
The Rotary Foundation requires candidates must complete the on-line application no later than May 31, 2017. Given that the application must be endorsed by District 7010, applicants are asked to submit your online application by May 24, 2017. This will allow District Peace Fellowship Chair Colin Vickers the opportunity to review the application and make suggestions for improvement. Applicants should save the date June 3, 2017, as an interview may be required. Normally this interview is held in North Bay, Ontario. These steps will ensure endorsement and submission by July 1, 2017. District 7010 can endorse multiple candidates.
