Good luck to all of the UR students in the Hult Prize competition--and a special shout out to Annamarie Forestiere, who is one of our Fulbright semifinalists, and Allan Chen, who is one of our Goldwater Scholarship nominees.
Each year, Rotary funds some of the world's most dedicated and brightest professionals to study at Rotary Peace Centers. Through training, study, and practice, Rotary Peace Fellows become leaders and catalysts for peace and conflict resolution; many go on to careers in national governments, NGOs, the military, law enforcement, and international organizations like the United Nations and World Bank.
Applications for the 2019-20 Rotary Peace Fellowship program are now being accepted. The deadline for applicants to submit applications to their district is 31 May.
