Rotary Peace Fellowship
Rotary Peace Fellowship is fully-funded academic fellowship to provide the opportunity to master advanced levels of study in fields related to peace and conflict resolution to young leaders and professionals working in the relevant fields. There are six Rotary Peace Centers (5 for MA degree and 1 for professional certificate) at renowned universities in the world and applicants are to choose one institution to join. ICU Rotary Peace Center is one of the centers established and started offering its program when the Fellowship program started.
At ICU, duration of the program is 22 months and Peace Fellows will pursue the Master’s degree in Peace Studies or other related fields through the program. Fellowship stipend covers the university tuition and facilities fees and also includes living allowance, contingency funds, and conference/research funds.
