Women Fellowships » Academic Fellowships » Education Fellowships
Women Scholarships for Developing Countries: The International Peace Research Association Foundation invites applications for the Dorothy Marchus Senesh Fellowship in Peace and Development Studies for Third World Women.
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 fund provides a biennial fellowship awarded to a woman from the developing world for studies in fields of peace and development.
Third World Women Scholarships: Award Amount
Every other year (beginning in 1990) one woman receives school expenses in the amount of $5,000 per year for two years.
Women Scholarships for Developing Countries: Fellowship Application Eligibility
The Dorothy Senesh Fellowship is available to women from the Third World 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.
