PEACE INSTITUTE

 
**The inaugural District 5400 Peace Conference is included in your District Celebration registration**
 

Friday, May 17th

Boise Centre 

Each year, Rotary selects up to 100 professionals from around the world to receive fellowships to study at the RI peace centers. Through academic training, practice, and global networking opportunities, the Rotary Peace Centers program develops leaders who become catalysts for peace and conflict prevention and resolution. These fellowships cover tuition and fees, room and board, round-trip transportation, and all internship and field-study expenses. In 2019, District 5400 will have its first-ever Peace Conference track, featuring Rotary Peace Fellows and a lineup of leaders who are experts in their peace-promoting fields.
