Dear Friends of Peace Corps,
I am writing to you as an RPCV from Peru 2004-2006. I am currently working at The Rotary Foundation with the Rotary Peace Fellowship Program. We have just completed a successful round of our Rotary Peace Centers fellow selection for 2013-14 and are starting recruitment for the 2014-15 selection. I wanted to reach out to you for help with recruitment—for RPCVs, PCVs and HCNs in volunteers’ sites and in the PC office. Over the past ten years, Rotary Peace Centers has provided over 700 future peace leaders with peace and conflict resolution education and field experience. Our alumni work all over the world with organizations ranging from grassroots peace initiatives in Africa to the United Nations. In an effort to reach out to more qualified candidates all over the world, Rotary is reaching out peace-related organizations and asking them to post our fellowship opportunity to their websites, social media, listservs or newsletters. This is such an incredible opportunity for RPCVs and for leaders in their community.
Below is a short description of the fellowship: The RotaryFoundation is now accepting applications for the world-competitive Rotary Peace Fellowship. The fellowship provides academic and practical training to prepare scholars for leadership roles in solving conflicts around the world. Up to 100 fellows are selected every year in a globally competitive process based on personal, academic, and professional achievements. Fellows earn a master’s-level degree or a professional development certificate in peace and conflict studies at one of sixRotary Peace Centers at leading universities in Australia, England, Japan, the United States, Sweden and Thailand. To learn more about the program, applicants are encouraged to visit the Rotary Peace Centers website atwww.rotary.org/rotarycenters. All applications are due 1 July 2014. If you have any questions about the fellowship, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you in advance for helpingRotary promote a more peaceful world.
