About Dorothy Marchus Senesh Fellowship for Women


About IPRA


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.


Dorothy Marchus Senesh Fellowship for Women from Countries in the Global South in Peace and Development Studies

Sixteenth Biennial Award 2020-2021

The International Peace Research Association Foundation


The IPRA Foundation was founded in 1990 as a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. The Foundation’s purpose is to promote peace research and scholarship throughout the world.


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 countries in the Global South. 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 conference, July 1990, in Groningen, Netherlands and has been made biennially ever since.


Fellowship Awards


Every other year (beginning in 1990) two women receive school expenses in the amount of $5,000 per year for two years.




The Dorothy Senesh Fellowship is available to women from countries in the Global South 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 (see below.) 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.


This fellowship is not for research purposes and proposals. Do not apply if you are male, if you are an undergraduate, or if you are not from a country in the Global South.

Announcement of the Awards will be made by March 1, 2020.
