The Jennings Randolph Program wishes to inform potential applicants to the 2014-2015 Senior Fellowship Program that, due to restructuring and new strategic priorities within the U.S. Institute of Peace, we are suspending the senior fellowship program for 2014-2015 and are not accepting any new applications at this time. Please contact Lili Cole at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have general questions.
The Jennings Randolph (JR) Senior Fellowship Program has provided scholars, policy analysts, policymakers, and other experts with opportunities to spend time in residence at the Institute, reflecting and writing on pressing international peace and security challenges.
The Jennings Randolph Senior Fellowship Program is being redesigned. During this time, we will not accept applications to the Senior Fellowship Program.
Over the past 25 years, the Jennings Randolph Program has fostered new understandings of conflict and peacebuilding through support for about 325 Senior Fellows, including Army Fellows and Post-Doctoral Fellows through the TAPIR Program (Transatlantic Post-Doctoral Fellowship for International Relations and Security), as well as some 250 pre-doctoral Peace Scholars, whose USIP scholarships supported writing and research for cutting-edge doctoral dissertations on international conflict and peacebuilding.
