The U.S. Institute of Peace is pleased to announce the 2021-22 cohort of Peace Scholar Fellows. This year 115 applicants from 88 U.S. universities applied for this prestigious award. The 18 award recipients demonstrated the greatest potential to advance the peacebuilding field and the strongest likelihood to inform policy and practice.
Since 1988, USIP has awarded 371 non-residential fellowships to doctoral candidates enrolled in U.S. universities, many of whom have gone on to distinguished careers in research, teaching and policymaking. Over the past four years, USIP has collaborated with the Minerva Research Initiative to build upon the successes of the Peace Scholar program.
