Ever since the 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. Please see Small Peace Research Grants for details of the many wonderful projects we have funded from 2002 through 2012. The original “Small Peace Research Grants Program” was replaced by the current IPRA Foundation Peace Research Grants Program in 2013 with larger grants available of up to $5,000, and details about these wonderful projects can be found below.
- We accept applications at any time, however, they will be reviewed only two times per year after the two deadlines, February 28 and August 31.
- Read the Instructions for the Peace Research Grants thoroughly.
- Download the IPRA Foundation Peace Research Grant Application and fill it in.
Only one grant will be awarded to any applicant from either the Peace Research Grant Program or the Small Peace Research Grant Program. If you have previously received a grant, please do not apply for another.
The Peace Research Grant Administrator will do an initial review of your project for this award. If your application is deemed suitable, it will be sent out to three IPRAF board members for review.
There are two granting cycles per year as follows:
Cycle 1: Deadline for applications February 28 or 29
Cycle 2: Deadline for applications August 31
Applicants may receive only one Peace Research grant.
