IPRA Foundation: Peace Research Grant Program

IPRA Foundation: Peace Research Grant Program

Deadline: 28-Feb-22

The International Peace Research Association (IPRA) Foundation is proud to announce the Peace Research Grant Program from scholars around the world and it brings them great sadness that they are only able to fund a very small number of them.

The mission of the IPRA Foundation is to advance the field of peace research through rigorous investigation into the causes of conflict and examination of alternatives to violence. Peace researchers inform peace activities that inspire visions of a peaceful world.

Ever since the Peace Research Grants Fund was created in 2002, the IPRA Foundation has awarded grants to help fund peace research projects in places as diverse as Argentina, Bosnia, inner city communities in the United States, the Middle East, the Philippines, the Punjab, and Uganda.

The vision of the IPRA Foundation is to:

Inspire visions of a peaceful world
Promote knowledge of non-violent peace strategies
Increase the number of peace scholars around the world
Encourage peace science and arts
Grow worldwide communication and collaboration among peace researchers
Further the purpose and activities of IPRA
Impactful and socially relevant research: They value original research, and peace activities informed by that research, that contributes to the world community and engages key stakeholders.
