The Enfield Rotary Club and Enfield Rotary Memorial Scholarship Foundation announce the availability of a Peace Studies Scholarship.

The Peace Studies Scholar will attend a “Conflict Resolution from Religious Traditions” course in Jerusalem from December 30, 2013 – January 9, 2014. The English language course is open to Enfield residents enrolled in a minimum of 8 college credits during the 2013-2014 school year, in any undergraduate or graduate school program.

The course (http://law.hamline.edu/study_abroad/jerusalem.html) is administered by the Hamline University School of Law and is conducted at Hebrew University in Jerusalem. It concentrates on the three monotheistic religions that originated in the Middle East—their coexistence, political, cultural and religious interactions, dispute resolution and the peace process.

The Peace Studies Scholarship covers all costs for travel to and from Israel, accommodations at the university, breakfast, course fees and scheduled day trips in the 10-day curriculum. The value of the scholarship is approximately $5,000. The successful applicant should expect to spend an additional $500 for meals and personal expenses.

The Application for the Peace Studies Scholarship is available on the internet at the Enfield Rotary Club website in the download section: www.enfieldctrotary.org. It is also available at the Freshwater Veterinary Hospital, 151 Hazard Avenue, Enfield. The application consists of an essay of no more than 1,000 words on why you should be chosen to be a Peace Studies Scholar. The deadline for applications is September 16, 2013.
