Women accepted into this program are seeking ways to further their peacemaking efforts in their home countries.
The Women PeaceMakers Program is a selective program for leaders who want to document, share, and build upon their unique peacemaking stories.
Selected peacemakers will receive round-trip airfare, housing, and a small stipend to cover expenses for the eight-week residency in San Diego, California.
The program will provide each peacemaker with an assistant writer and film assistant to document her story.
Each peacemaker will receive a small stipend to cover expenses while in San Diego and living accommodations at the IPJ's Casa de la Paz will be provided.
This is a program open to women who have been involved in either official or unofficial peace processes and who may be working at the grassroots, national, or international level.
Application deadline for Peace Writers is May 30, 2014
