The Rotary Peace Centers program builds the capability of peace and development professionals to become effective peace catalysts via academic training, practice, and worldwide networking opportunities. The fellowships pay for lodging and board, round-trip transportation, internship and field study costs, as well as tuition and fees.

The Rotary Peace Centers have educated more than 1,600 fellows since the program's inception in 2002, and they now serve in more than 140 nations. Many have leadership positions in governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), educational and scientific institutions, peacekeeping and law enforcement groups, as well as global institutions like the United Nations and the World Bank.
