Women PeaceMakers Program Fellow
University of San Diego’s Kroc School of Peace Studies -San Diego, CA
|Building on 15 years of the Women PeaceMakers program, we believe that strengthening collaborations between expert “insiders” to these conflicts--specifically women peacemakers--and “outsiders” supporting peace efforts, can transform how we do peacebuilding.
The Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice (IPJ), at the University of San Diego’s Kroc School of Peace Studies, is currently accepting applications for its Women PeaceMakers Program.
The new Women PeaceMakers Program will offer a unique fellowship for peacebuilders, focused on strengthening and improving peace efforts in conflict-affected communities around the world. The 10-month fellowship will do this through building an engaged community of four peacebuilders from conflict-affected communities and four international peace partners looking to transform their ability to build peace together.

Applicants for the Women PeaceMakers fellowship must:
From September 2017 to June 2018, the cohort of eight will engage in an active learning community with in-person residencies and a virtual learning exchange to explore successes and challenges to their work ending cycles of violence.
