The Jennings Randolph (JR) Peace scholarship Dissertation Program is currently suspended. The program awarded scholarships to students at U.S. universities who wrote doctoral dissertations with clear relevance for policy and practice in the field of international peacebuilding and conflict management
The class of 2014-2015 Peace Scholars will be the final cohort of Jennings Randolph Peace Scholars. We expect to announce the winners of the Peace Scholarships in early May. Between 1988 and 2014, USIP awarded scholarships to some 250 pre-doctoral Peace Scholars, whose USIP scholarships supported writing and research for cutting-edge doctoral dissertations on international conflict and peacebuilding.
