The JR Program for International Peace awards Peace Scholar Dissertation Fellowships to students enrolled in U.S. universities who are researching and writing doctoral dissertations on topics related to international conflict management and peacebuilding. Proposals from all disciplines are welcome. Proposals should be consistent with the Institute’s mission and present a research agenda with clear relevance to policy issues. Historical topics are appropriate if they promise to shed light on contemporary issues. Area studies projects and single case studies will be competitive if they focus on conflict and its resolution, apply to other regions and cases, or both. Beginning in 2015, the program will award 4-7 Peace Scholar Fellowships. The fellowships last for 10 months, starting in September. Fellowships are open to citizens of any country and dissertation projects in all disciplines are welcome.
