The application period for the 2018-2019 Senesh Fellowship is now open. The International Peace Research Association Foundation invites women from the Global South to apply for the Dorothy Marchus Senesh Fellowship in Peace and Development Studies. The Foundation’s purpose is to promote peace research and scholarship throughout the world.
The Dorothy Marchus Senesh Fellowship provides two biennial fellowships awarded to two women from the developing world for studies in the field of peace. The Fellowships provide $5,000 per year for two years for both women, for a total of $10,000 each.
Dorothy Senesh was a long-time activist for international peace and justice. Her husband Lawrence established this fellowship following her death in 1989. The first award was made at the IPRA 25th Anniversary meeting, July 1990, in Groningen, Netherlands and has been made biennially ever since.
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.
