Promoting peace is one of Rotary‚Äôs main causes. The fully funded Rotary Peace Fellowship, which covers tuition and living expenses, increases the capacity of existing leaders to prevent and resolve conflict by offering academic training, field experience, and professional networking. 
Clubs and districts have the power to shape the next generation of peace leaders by recruiting and nominating peace fellows, and keeping them engaged after the fellowship ends.
Districts interview and endorse qualified candidates, which is required before The Rotary Foundation can consider a candidate. Clubs help by recommending and coaching qualified candidates. 
The application process is now open, with a due date of May 31 for applications to be submitted to Rotary Districts.

If you know someone you think would make a good candidate, please refer them to Rotary International using this online form.  If the person is interested in applying, let me know so we can meet with the individual and decide whether to endorse the application as a club.
