The JR Program for International Peace awards Senior Fellowships to outstanding practitioners, scholars, policymakers, journalists, and other professionals so they can conduct research on conflict and peace while in residence at the Institute. The Institute awards between 8 and 12 fellowships per year.
Priority is given to proposals deemed likely to make timely and significant contributions to the understanding and resolution of ongoing and emerging conflicts and other challenges to international peace and security.
Applications are invited from all disciplines in the humanities, natural sciences, social and behavioral sciences, and the professions.
Applicants should propose projects with clear policy relevance. Historical topics are appropriate if they promise to shed light on contemporary issues. Area studies projects and single-case studies will be competitive if they focus on conflict and its resolution, apply to other regions and cases, or both.
Senior Fellow awards may not be granted for projects that constitute policymaking for a government agency or private organization, focus to any substantial degree on conflicts within U.S. domestic society, or adopt a partisan, advocacy, or activist stance.
