Cora Weiss Fellowship for Young Women Peacebuilders / Friends of WPS: 2020-2021 Women Peace Makers Fellowship

22 May, 2020

Dear Friends of Women, Peace and Security (WPS),

You or someone in your network may be interested in applying for the 2020-2021 Women PeaceMakers Fellowship. The deadline to apply has been extended to June 1st 2020.

The Women PeaceMakers fellowship offers a unique opportunity for local women peacebuilders to engage in a cycle of learning, practice, research and strengthening of peacebuilding partnerships through participation in a 12-month fellowship. Knowing the power of women’s participation in peace and security decision-making, the Women PeaceMaker fellowship aims to drive forward stronger, more effective collaborations between women peacebuilders from conflict-affected communities and international partner organizations. By co-developing evidence based and data driven solutions, the women and international organizations who are at the center of our most serious peacebuilding challenges demonstrate why they are best positioned to influence positive change.

Through the 12-month fellowship with the Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice, selected Fellows will:

  • Learn from and with other leading Fellows and the Kroc School’s team (to see examples of past Fellows, click here)
  • Gain new skills, perspectives and innovative approaches to peacebuilding
  • Expand their professional peacebuilding networks
  • Drive forward vital peacebuilding research that focuses on shifting practice and policy
