About IPRA

The International Peace Research Association (IPRA) is an independent international non-governmental body with members in over seventy countries and all regions of the world. IPRA was founded in 1965 to advance interdisciplinary research into the conditions of peace, as well as the causes of war and other forms of violence. It utilizes different social disciplines to analyze and explain conflictual and peaceful processes at the national and international levels. IPRA researchers are able to test their individual research in working groups covering a range of topics including communications, conversion from military to civilian production, defense and disarmament, ecological security, food policy, human rights and development, internal conflict resolution, international conflict resolution, nonviolence, peace building in crisis areas, peace education, peace movements, refugees, religious conflict, and women and peace.

Description of Ideal Candidate

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. 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 you are male, if you are an undergraduate, or if you are not from a country in the Global South.
