The Duke-UNC Rotary Peace Center promotes peace through a holistic approach to training by combining conflict resolution methods, peacebuilding and conflict prevention with an emphasis on more sustainable economic, political and human development.
Jointly managed by the Duke Center for International Development (DCID) and UNC’s Office of the Vice Provost for Global Affairs, and funded by a grant from the Rotary Foundation, the Duke-UNC Rotary Peace Center offers Rotary Peace Fellows the best faculty, courses, resources and technology from both Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC).
Rotary Peace Fellowship
Rotary Peace Fellows are committed to the advancement of peace, serving as leaders in a range of international, national and local organizations. They promote national and international cooperation, peace and the successful resolution of conflict in their lives, in their careers and through their service activities.
Each year, five fellows enroll at Duke University in the Master of International Development Policy (MIDP) and five fellows enroll at the UNC in one of several master’s degree programs in the social sciences (e.g. global studies, education, political science, journalism, city and regional planning) or public health. Fellows at both universities can also earn a graduate certificate in international peace and conflict resolution from UNC.
In addition to learning research-based theories and approaches to peace and development, fellows build practical skills through a self-designed, two- to three-month field experience; develop professional skills during peacebuilding and development workshops; and expand their global network of academics, peace workers, and Rotary members.
These fellows are supported by the Rotary Peace Fellowship for the 21-month duration of the program. The fellowship includes funding for tuition and other university fees, a monthly stipend for room and board, a contingency fund, funding for conferences and research, summer internship support, and transportation between the fellow’s home and study destination at the start and end of the fellowship period.
