September – July.


Fellows will complete a two-week residency at the University of San Diego in the United States, usually in November. These dates are subject to change depending on the COVID-19 pandemic and Fellows’ travel requirements.


Fellows will receive a stipend of USD $15,000 plus expenses for their participation in the program.


Anyone who considers themselves a peacebuilder working to reduce cycles of violence through a focus on gender, peace, and conflict is welcome to apply. People of all genders, including transgender and non-binary or gender-fluid people, are eligible for a fellowship. The Women PeaceMakers Fellowship program does not consider sex, gender, or any other protected status as part of the application and selection process.  Applicants may come from any country, as long as they will be able to travel to the United States for the residency. Applicants must have at least five years of peacebuilding experience and must speak sufficient English to participate fully in Fellowship activities. 


Each year, the Fellowship is centered on a theme that will structure the research. Strong applicants will have experience and knowledge specific to that theme.
