ROTARY IS THE LARGEST AND LONGEST SERVING PEACEBUILDING NONPROFIT IN THE WORLD
 
Proclaimed in 1917, Rotary’s goal of worldwide peace and tolerance has been an unwavering pursuit: conducting global forums, hosting international peace symposiums, advancing peace through its 60-year collaboration with the UN, as well as grassroots initiatives such as the Rotarian Action Group for Peace.
 
 
Rotary's most significant effort to wage peace is the Rotary Peace Centers program, established in 2002. Each year, the program trains some of the world's most dedicated and brightest professionals, preparing them to promote national and international cooperation and to resolve conflict. There are seven Rotary Peace Centres throughout the world. They are in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA, Tokyo, Japan, Bradford, England, Brisbane, Australia, Uppsala, Sweden Bangkok, Thailand and Kampala, Uganda. Learn more about Rotary Peace Centre and our investment in Peace Fellowships at rotary.org.
 
 
Peace and Conflict Studies at The University of Waterloo
 
Forty years ago, Conrad Grebel University College established the first peace studies program at a Canadian university. With the establishment of the Balsillie School for International Affairs, the University of Waterloo has focused its reputation and resources to train students and provide research capacity to deal with global governance issues. Strategic partnerships with Rotarians around the world will utilize the experience and resources Waterloo has for creating a more peace-filled world. 
 
Rotary Clubs in the Kitchener-Waterloo area have awarded close to $150,000 over the past 6 years to students pursuing a degree in Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Waterloo. Details about the scholarship program can be found on the Rotary Peace Scholarship website.
