Benefits for fellows include the following:

  • Up to a $10,000 scholarship per academic year.
  • Participation in conflict transformation professional development opportunities (e.g., conflict-related speaker events, webinars, trainings).
  • Peer mentorship throughout the fellowship.
  • Engagement in conflict transformation–related projects through our centers and initiatives, practicums, internships, courses, and experiential learning.
