Women PeaceMakers Program: Offering Unique Fellowship for Peacebuilders

Deadline: 31 May 2017

The Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice (IPJ), at the University of San Diego’s Kroc School of Peace Studies, is currently accepting applications for its Women PeaceMakers Program.

The new Women PeaceMakers program will offer a unique fellowship for peacebuilders, focused on strengthening and improving peace efforts around the world. The 10-month fellowship will do this through building an engaged community of four peacebuilders from conflict-affected communities and four international peace partners looking to transform their ability to end cycles of violence.

For 2017-18, the program’s focus will be on peacebuilders who engage with the security sector. During the 10-month fellowship, the program will focus on the question:

  • How can Women PeaceMakers and international partners build more effective local-global collaborations in their peacebuilding efforts to engage the security sector?

Participants will be selected based on their work with the security sector (police, military and other security forces) to advance peacebuilding, human security and women’s rights in local contexts.

Eligibility Criteria

Applicants for the Women PeaceMakers fellowship must:

  • Have worked for 10+ years as a peacebuilder, human rights defender, or peacemaker, leading peace efforts designing and working directly with the security sector in her country of origin;
  • Be a founder or leader of an organization, network, or movement;
  • Demonstrates peacebuilding/peacemaking skills and attitudes;
  • Be in a position to participate in all activities during the 10-month fellowship and apply what is learned at the conclusion of the residency program;
