Be the Change You Want to See - Scholarship will fund conflict resolution course in Jerusalem
ENFIELD, CT (Aug. 1, 2019)—The Enfield Rotary Club and Enfield Rotary Memorial Scholarship
Foundation announce the availability of the annual Peace Studies Scholarship.
The Peace Studies Scholarship is to attend a Conflict Resolution from Religious Traditions course in
Jerusalem from December 30, 2019 – January 8, 2020. The scholarship application is available to
Enfield residents enrolled in a minimum of 8 college credits during the 2019-2020 school year, in any
undergraduate or graduate school program.
The course is administered by the Mitchell Hamline School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota, and is held at
Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Students and faculty travel in a group, and while in Israel, attend
classes, meetings, and excursions together. The course concentrates on the three monotheistic religions
that originated in the Middle East. their coexistence, dispute resolution, and the peace process. The
course is conducted in English.
Many of our conflicts – locally, nationally, and abroad – could be minimized by deeper understanding of
others and better communication skills. This travel scholarship is designed to start locally, with you. Do
you need to be a religious person to benefit from this program? No. Does your career plan need to
include international business or politics? No. The skills taught in this program are beneficial to people in
many career paths. Lawyers, teachers, and journalists have attended the program in the past.
The Peace Studies Scholarship covers all costs for: travel to and from Israel, accommodations at the
university, breakfast, course fees, scheduled day trips in the curriculum, and $500 for meals and personal
expenses. The value of the scholarship is approximately $5,000.
Course details can be found on the Mitchell Hamline website: https://mitchellhamline.edu/disputeresolution-
institute/study-abroad-programs/conflict-resolution-from-religious-traditions/
US News & World Report has ranked Mitchell Hamline’s Dispute Resolution Institute in the top 5 dispute
resolution programs in the nation for 19 consecutive years.
The application for the Peace Studies Scholarship is available at the Enfield Rotary Club website in the
download section: www.enfieldctrotary.org. The application consists of an essay to be no longer than
1,000 words on why you should be chosen to be a Peace Studies Scholar. The deadline for applications
is October 1, 2019.
