Chulalongkorn is unique among the six Rotary Peace Centers in packing intensive coursework and field studies into a three-month program aimed at professionals already working in fields related to peace.
As a police department peace officer in Chatham-Kent, Ontario, Canada, Jennifer Jacobson deals with child abuse cases and sometimes sees the worst of humanity. But the goodness she sees in her fellow club members keeps her excited about Rotary. Her experience as a Rotary Peace Fellow cemented her decision to become a Rotarian. “Rotary has given me so much. I couldn’t not be a part of it,” says Jacobson, who is also a former Group Study Exchange participant.
Applications are invited for Rotary Peace Fellowships awarded in 2016 for the academic year in 2017
The Rotary Peace Fellowship is the premier educational program of The Rotary Foundation (TRF) and supports Rotary’s mission to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace. It is intended for individuals, who have chosen a career related to international relations, peace, and conflict resolution; who have work experience in these areas; and who have a commitment to community or international humanitarian service and working for peace. Applicants should consider these objectives carefully before applying.
