The International Peace Scholarship Fund, established in 1949, is a program which provides scholarships for selected women from other countries for graduate study in the United States and Canada.

The scholarship is based upon demonstrated need; however, the award is not intended to cover all academic or personal expenses. At the time of application, the applicant is required to indicate additional financial resources adequate to meet her estimated expenses. Examples of additional resources are personal and family funds, tuition waivers, work scholarships, teaching assistantships, study grants and other scholarships.

The maximum amount awarded to a student is $12,500. Lesser amounts may be awarded according to individual needs.

An applicant must be qualified for admission to full-time graduate study and working toward a graduate degree in an accredited college or university in the United States or Canada.

A student who is a citizen or permanent resident of the United States or Canada is not eligible.

In order to qualify for her first scholarship, an applicant must have a full year of coursework remaining, be enrolled and in residence for the entire school year.

Doctoral students who have completed coursework and are working only on dissertations are not eligible as first-time applicants.

The application deadline is December 15, 2016. For more details and to apply please visit the International Peace Scholarship Fund
