The Foundation's sole function is to further the purposes and activities of the International Peace Research Association (IPRA), which has for the last thirty two years sought to enhance the process of peace.
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.
The eleventh award will be made at the 23nd biennial IPRA meeting in Syndey, Australia.
Every other year (beginning in 1990) one woman receives school expenses in the amount of $5,000 per year for two years.
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.
