Scholar of Peace Fellowship Program -  WISCOMP

Women in Security, Conflict Management and Peace ( WISCOMP)

Academic Scholarships » Educational Program » International Fellowships

The Scholar of Peace Fellowships are awarded under three categories:

  • Academic Research
  • Media Projects and
  • Special Projects.
    The program encourages innovative, multi-disciplinary, theoretical engagement and research on issues that emerge at the intersection of the discourses on gender, security and conflict transformation.
    These include areas such as human security, conflict resolution, multi-track peace initiatives, gender and peace building, terrorism, regional cooperation, human rights, diversity and coexistence, governance et al.
    The focus is on projects that explore the interface between gender and these issues, within the terrain of peace building and non-traditional formulations of security.
    The Fellowships are seen as an important step to encourage more women to work in this crucial area, and are open to men who seek to bring important gender perspectives to their work on security, conflict and peace issues.
    Fellowships for Academic Research are expected to lead to the production of a publishable monograph by the end of the grant period.
    While fellowships are available to scholars at any stage of their careers, an M. Phil or Ph. D is a prerequisite for proposals under this category.
    The Media Fellowships are designed to support young and mid-career journalists seeking to focus on in-depth stories.
    Fellowships for the Special Projects seek to identify and support exceptional expertise and talent that explore innovative approaches and use creative mediums such as art, theater, dance, installations etc.
    The awards cover periods ranging from three months to one year.
