Rotary provides fellowships for master’s degrees in peace and development studies at six of the world’s top institutions. Teaching is based on practical research, and students have different backgrounds and professional experience. The length of the programmes ranges from 15 to 24 months, including two to three months of applied field experience created by the peace fellow.
Throughout the one-year blended learning programme, experienced peace and development professionals from various backgrounds acquire practical techniques for promoting peace in their communities and around the world.

Follow these steps to ensure that your application receives consideration.
1. Review the eligibility restrictions.
2. Research the curriculum and programs at each of the Rotary Peace Centers. You will be asked to rank two centers you prefer for the Master’s program if you meet the eligibility criteria for both programs. (Please note that we are accepting applications for the certificate program for the Rotary Peace Center at Makerere University in Uganda. The certificate program at Chulalongkorn University in Thailand is not accepting applications in 2023.)
3. 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. A club recommendation is optional, but strongly encouraged as part of your application.
4. Submit your application by 15 May. Applications require a resume, academic and/or professional recommendations, essays, transcripts from postsecondary colleges and universities attended (master’s only), English language proficiency test scores (master’s only), and social impact plan (certificate only). All materials must be in English.
5. Get endorsed. In early June, if your application meets the qualification and eligibility criteria, it will be automatically assigned to a trained Rotary endorser who is either a member of a District Rotary Peace Fellowship Subcommittee, a member of a Rotary club, or a Rotary Peace Fellow program alumnus. Your assigned endorser will reach out to you to schedule an interview during the month of June. After your interview, the Rotary endorser will submit an endorsement decision for your application by 1 July.
6. Await selection results. Email notifications will be sent in November. If you are chosen for a fellowship, you will be told which Peace Center will be the site for your studies.
7. Apply for admission (master’s only) to the university where your Peace Center is located. Being selected for the fellowship does not mean you have been admitted to the university.

Rotary Peace Fellows who have completed the certificate program, Master’s program, or a Global Grant Scholarship, must wait three years between the end date of that program and their intended start date for the fellowship.
