The International Peace Research Association Foundation
The IPRA Foundation was founded in 1990 as a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. The Foundation's sole function is to further the purposes and activities of the International Peace Research Association (IPRA), which has for the last thirty two years sought to enhance the process of peace.
DOROTHY MARCHUS SENESH FELLOWSHIP
The International Peace Research Association Foundation invites applications for the 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 first award was made at the IPRA 25th Anniversary meeting, July 1990, in Groningen, Netherlands and has been made biennially since. The twelfth award will be made at the 24th biennial IPRA meeting in Japan.
Every other year (beginning in 1990) one woman receives school expenses in the amount of $5,000 per year for two years. ELIGIBILITY
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.
Applications are due by January 15, 2012.
Announcement of the Award will be made by February 15, 2012.

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. IPRA researchers are able to test their individual research in working groups covering a range of topics including communications, conversion from military to civilian production, defense and disarmament, ecological security, food policy, human rights and development, internal conflict resolution, international conflict resolution, nonviolence, peace building in crisis areas, peace education, peace movements, refugees, religious conflict, and women and peace.
