Established in 1986, USIP’s Jennings Randolph Senior Fellowship program has supported research, writing and in-house advising on a wide variety of topics related to peace and violent conflict. The program's more than 320 past fellows have studied everything from the influence of Track Two Diplomacy on U.S.-Russia relations to the effects of oil and other natural resources on prospects for peace.
Since 1988, USIP's Peace Scholar Fellowship program has supported the dissertations of roughly 300 young scholars, most of whom have gone on to distinguished careers in research, teaching and policy making. This annual award program also partners with the Minerva Research Initiative to offer additional pre-doctoral fellowships on peace and security topics.
The Institute also hosts Military Fellows serving in a Senior Service College Fellowship capacity.
