Peace Institute Offers International Fellowship

The United States Institute of Peace, USIP Jennings Randolph JR Senior Fellowship promises scholars, policy analysts, policy makers, journalists and other experts from any country opportunities to spend time at the Institute reflecting and writing on pressing international peace and security challenges with a topic – war and conflict.

The 10-month programme starting in October will attempt to match the recipient’s earned income during the year preceding the fellowships, up to a maximum of US$100,000 for 10 months. There is also provision for shorter-term fellowships.

The Institute in addition pledges coverage of 80 percent of health premiums for the fellow and eligible dependents, with a cap of $500 per month in certain cases.

Priority will be given to proposals deemed likely to make timely and significant contributions to the understanding and resolution of ongoing and emerging conflicts and other challenges to international peace and security.
