This year, District 9640 had two applications for endorsement for Rotary Peace Fellow Scholarships: 1 from Pakistan; 1 from Nigeria. There were no local applicants. One application, from a Pakistani lady, was endorsed by the District Governor and was forwarded to Rotary International. She had also applied two years ago, when she was granted an ‘alternative’ position (read: put on a waiting list) and ultimately she would have been successful. Regrettably, she was unable to take it up since she had just given birth to her daughter.
 
Do you know someone that may qualify for a Rotary Peace Fellowship Scholarship? These scholarships are a valuable learning activity for a young adult up to study in overseas universities in that very subject. Basically, all expenses are paid for. Click on this link: Rotary World Peace Fellowships, or contact me if you know of a potential prospect.
