Although significant progress has been made in the pursuit of women’s equality, there is still much work to be done to achieve gender equality in our daily lives and professional environment. It is sad that there are still people who strongly oppose gender equality. To overcome these difficulties, many scholarships are created to provide women with support and opportunities to further their research.
About the Dorothy Marchus Senesh Fellowship for Women:
The International Peace Research Association (IPRA) awards the Dorothy Marcus Senesh Fellowships to two candidates from developing countries every other year to pursue a degree in the field of peace.
This scholarship was established by the late Larry Senesh, former professor of economics at the University of Colorado, in memory of his late wife, Dorothy. The award consists of $5,000 per year for two years. The IPRA foundation was established in 1990 and is a non-profit organization that benefits from tax exemption. They operate to advance peace research and support peace scholars around the world.
Applications for the Dorothy Marchus Senesh Fellowship in Peace and Development Studies are now open for women from developing countries. Since Dorothy Senesh was a lifelong advocate for peace and justice, she established this fellowship after her death so that her legacy and vision could be carried on by other women.
