Fellows earn either a professional development certificate in peace and conflict studies or a master’s degree in a range of disciplines related to peace and security at one of six Rotary Peace Centers at leading universities around the world. More than half of the 900 alumni are working in UN organizations and the World Bank, as well as in NGOs and government civil services.
