Since 2001, PeacePlayers has recruited 90 outstanding post-collegiate scholar athletes as International Fellows to serve two-year terms with its programs around the world. PPI Fellows provide basketball expertise, serve as mentors and role models, and act as neutral facilitators for PPI coaches and participants. Fellows also benefit from an exceptional educational and professional experience and are at the forefront of a worldwide movement to use sport as a vehicle for social change.
Upon completing their fellowships, PPI alumni have gone on to careers in fields including finance, technology, sports management, social entrepreneurship, and international development and have attended graduate schools including the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, Columbia University Business School, and Tuft’s Fletcher School of Diplomacy.
PeacePlayers has fellowship openings at three of our four international sites starting in 2017. We are seeking applications from former high school and college athletes who are passionate about the opportunity to use sport to make a difference around the world. To apply, click here!
