The International Peace Research Association (IPRA) Foundation was founded in 1990 as a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. The Foundation’s purpose is to promote peace research and scholarship throughout the world.


Every other year (beginning in 1990) two women receive school expenses in the amount of $5,000 per year for two years.


  • The Dorothy Senesh Fellowship is available to women from countries in the Global South who have completed a Bachelor’s degree, who have been accepted into a graduate program, and
  • Whose graduate work is to be focused on issues related to the goals of the IPRA Foundation.
  • Funds will only be dispersed when the selected candidate is admitted into a graduate program.
