Fully-Funded Rotary Peace Fellowship at Makerere

Application timeline

The 2022-23 Rotary Peace Fellowship application is now closed. The 2023-24 Rotary Peace Fellowship application will be available in February, 2022. Every year, districts must submit endorsed applications to The Rotary Foundation by 1 July. Review district endorsement instructions.

Are you an experienced professional dedicated to peace and development work in Africa? We think the fully-funded Rotary Peace Fellowship at Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda could be a great fit for you.

Each year, The Rotary Foundation awards up to 40 fellowships for the Certificate in Peacebuilding, Conflict Transformation and Development at Makerere University Rotary Peace Center. The one-year program intended for working professionals includes a two-week online preliminary course, a 10-week on-site course with field studies, a nine-month implementation period for a social change initiative (with interactive online sessions), and an on-site capstone seminar.

The program integrates theory, research, and practice for peace and development leaders who are from or who have worked in Africa. Fellows will focus on issues of particular relevance to Africa with key modules including; Fundamentals and Approaches to Peacebuilding; Human Rights, Governance and Media; Refugees, Migration and Community Cohesion; Identity, Human Security, Resources & Climate Change.

We are currently recruiting candidates for the 2022 academic year. The candidates should be able to demonstrate their ability to have a significant positive impact on peace and conflict resolution during their future careers.

We hope to see your application for the Rotary Peace Fellowship soon. Or feel free to refer a friend.
