Rotary Peace Fellowships at Bradford
The Rotary Peace Centre at the University of Bradford hosts and supports ten fully-funded MA Rotary Peace Fellows from around the world each year and is based in the Division of Peace Studies and International Development (PSID). The Centre was established in 2002 as a founding member of the Rotary Peace Centres network. There are five additional Rotary Peace Centres at the University of North Carolina-Duke University (USA), University of Queensland (Australia), International Christian University (Japan), Chulalongkorn University (Thailand), and Uppsala University (Sweden). Since 2002, the Rotary Foundation has invested more than $150 million (USD) in the global Rotary Peace Fellowship programme. The six Rotary Peace Centres have collectively trained over 1,100 Rotary Peace Fellows.
Rotary Peace Fellows are selected through a highly-competitive international process that is led by Rotary International, the Rotary Foundation, and the Roary Peace Centres.
