IPRA: Inviting Applications for Dorothy Marchus Senesh Fellowship in Peace and Development Studies for Women

Deadline: 15 January 2018

The International Peace Research Association Foundation (IPRAF) is inviting applications for its Dorothy Marchus Senesh Fellowship in Peace and Development Studies for Women.

The IPRA Foundation was founded in 1990 as a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. The Foundation’s purpose is to promote peace research and scholarship throughout the world.

Dorothy Senesh was a long-time activist for international peace and justice. Her husband Lawrence established this fellowship following her death in 1989. The first award was made at the IPRA 25th Anniversary meeting, July 1990, in Groningen, Netherlands and has been made biennially ever since.

Award Information

Every other year (beginning in 1990) two women receive school expenses in the amount of $5,000 per year for two years.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The Dorothy Senesh Fellowship is available to women from countries in the Global South who have completed a Bachelor’s degree, who have been accepted into a graduate program and whose graduate work is to be focused on issues related to the goals of IPRA (see below).
  • Funds will only be dispersed when the selected candidate is admitted into a graduate program. Awards are considered based on need; therefore students with substantial funding sources are less likely to be considered for the award.
  • This fellowship is not for research purposes and proposals. Do not apply if applicants are male, if applicants are an undergraduate, or if they are not from a country in the Global South.
