Senesh 2020 Professional Fellowships in Peace and Development Studies for Women

The International Peace Research Association (IPRA) Foundation has opened its call for the Dorothy Marchus Senesh 2020 Fellowship in Peace and Development Studies for Women.

Dorothy Senesh was a long-time activist for international peace and justice. Her husband, Lawrence, established this scholarship after her death in 1989. The first scholarship was awarded at IPRA’s 25th anniversary conference in July 1990 in Groningen, the Netherlands, and has been done every two years since then.

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

  • The Dorothy Senesh Fellowship is available to women from countries in the Global South who have completed a Bachelor’s degree, have been accepted into a graduate program, and whose graduate work focuses on issues related to IPRA’s objectives.
  • Funds will only be dispersed when the successful candidate is admitted to a graduate program.
  • Awards are considered as needed; therefore, students with significant funding sources are less likely to be considered for the award.
