Scholarship to build peace

2016-04-12 06:00

Do you want a career in peace building and the opportunity to study abroad?

Through Rotary International’s Peace Fellowship you may just have the opportunity to do both. Apply before the end of May 2016 to stand a chance of being selected to participate in the programme.

Each year, Rotary selects up to 100 individuals from around the globe to receive fully funded academic fellowships at one of their international peace centres. These fellowships cover tuition fees, room and board, round-trip transportation, and all internship and field-study expenses.

Rotary Peace Centres have trained more than 900 people in this way, many of whom go on to become leaders in government, international institutions or non-profit organisations.

The Peace Fellowships provide fully funded training at prestigious universities in Australia, Japan, Sweden, Thailand, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.

The deadline for applications is on Tuesday 31 May, interviews with short-listed candidates will take place during the first two weeks of June.

“There are two types of peace fellowships available,” says Mike Walwyn, Rotarian from the Rotary Club of Newlands.

“There is a Master’s Degree Programme, intended for those candidates who are still developing into their peace building or conflict resolution careers.

“The other, is a Professional Development Certificate Programme, which is intended for those candidates who are already working as peace builders and wish to upskill. This is a three month programme which takes place in Bangkok”.
