North Alabama Rotary Clubs are offering a few Alabama professionals an opportunity to change the world through a Rotary Peace Fellowship.
The program’s mission is to create sustainable peace by educating a global network of peacebuilders and community leaders who are committed to preventing and resolving conflicts around the world. There are more than 1,300 Rotary Peace Fellows working in more than 115 countries.
Alabama-based Rotary Peace Fellow applicants can choose one of two education options: pursue a Master’s degree in peace and development studies at a Rotary Peace Center in Australia, Japan, England, or Sweden; or pursue a certificate in peace and development studies at a Rotary Peace Center in Thailand or Uganda. The Rotary Foundation covers each program’s associated costs.
Both programs have eligibility requirements, and applicants who live in the highlighted counties below are eligible to apply to the Rotary District 6860 (North Alabama) Peace Fellowship Committee.
The next round of applications will open in February 2021, and Rotary District 6860 must submit applications to Rotary International by July 1. I am chairing the 2020-2021 Rotary District 6860 Peace Fellowships committee, so if you are considering this opportunity, bookmark this post and contact me for more information.
Rotary believes that “if concerned citizens work together to create peace locally, lasting change can happen globally.” North Alabama Rotary Clubs look forward to giving you an opportunity to change the world.
