Ever since the Small Peace Research Grants Fund was created in 2002, IPRAF 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 Small Peace Research Grant Program was replaced by the Peace Research Grants Program in 2013.
