Dorothy Marchus Senesh Fellowship for Women in Peace & Development Studies

Deadline: January 15, 2014

The International Peace Research Association (IPRA) Foundation invites applications for the 2014-2015 Dorothy Marchus Senesh Fellowship in Peace and Development Studies for Women from developing countries. Dorothy Senesh was a long-time activist for international peace and justice. Her husband Lawrence established this fellowship following her death in 1989. The biennial award now in its thirteenth edition will be made at the 25th biennial IPRA meeting in Turkey. 

Each year, one woman receives school expenses in the amount of $5,000 per year for two years. This year, for the first time, two fellowships will be awarded.


  • The Dorothy Senesh Fellowship is available to women from developing countries who have completed a Bachelor’s degree, who have been accepted into a graduate program and whose graduate work is to be focused on issues related to the goals of IPRA.
  • Funds will only be dispersed when the selected candidate is admitted into a graduate program.
  • Awards are considered based on need; therefore students with substantial funding sources are less likely to be considered for the award.

Announcement of the Award will be made by March 1, 2014.
