2017/18 Jennings Randolph Peace Scholarship for All Countries


The United States Institute of Peace (USIP) is delighted to announce that the Jennings Randolph Peace Scholarship Program is being continued this year.

USIP’s Jennings Randolph Program for International Peace awards non-residential Peace Scholar Dissertation Fellowships to students enrolled in U.S. universities and who are writing doctoral dissertations on topics related to international conflict management and peacebuilding.

Applicants must be enrolled in recognized doctoral programs (for example, Ph.D., S.J.D., Ed.D., Th.D.) in accredited universities in the United States.

Successful candidates must have completed all course work and examinations towards their doctoral degrees by the time their fellowships begin.

Each awardee of a 2017-2018 Jennings Randolph Peace Scholarship will be required to submit a short (2-5 pp) report on his or her research topic and the work completed during the fellowship year by May 31 of the fellowship year. The report should be written in a style that policy makers and the informed public can understand. The requirement is a response to interest in the work of the Peace Scholars and how their dissertation topics can contribute to international peace and conflict management.

Awards are currently set at $20,000 for 10 months and are paid directly to the individual. Peace Scholar Awards may not be deferred. They generally may not be combined with any other major award or fellowship except in special circumstances and with the written approval of the Institute.

The deadline for 2016 will be on Tuesday, November 22, at 6:00 [18:00] pm EST.
