Jennings Randolph Fellowship Program

Peace Scholar Dissertation Fellowship Overview

The Jennings Randolph program awards Peace Scholar Dissertation 
Fellowships to students at U.S. universities researching and writing 
doctoral dissertations on international conflict and peace.

Named for the former United States Senator from West Virginia whose 
efforts over four decades helped establish USIP, the Jennings Randolph 
program has awarded nearly 200 Peace Scholar Dissertation Fellowships. 
The program has established itself since its founding in 1987 as one of 
the nation's premier fellowship programs for research on international 
conflict management and peacebuilding.

USIP invites applications for Peace Scholar awards offered by the 
Jennings Randolph program. These fellowships are intended to support 
the research and writing of doctoral dissertations addressing the 
sources and nature of international conflict and ways of preventing or 
ending conflict and sustaining peace.

Dissertation projects from all disciplines are welcome. Priority will 
be given to projects that contribute knowledge relevant to the 
formulation of policy on international peace and conflict issues. USIP 
expects to award at least ten Peace Scholar fellowships for 20007-2008.

The 2007-2008 Peace Scholar Dissertation Fellowship:

    * Provides fellowships for dissertation research and writing on 
projects addressing international peace and conflict resolution at U.S. 
    * Awards $17,000 for 12 months beginning September 2007.
    * Is open to citizens of any country.

Applications are due January 10, 2007. Visit the program website for an
