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. Please see Small Peace Research Grants for details of the many wonderful projects we have funded.
The Small Peace Research Grants Program was replaced by the IPRA Foundation Peace Research Grants Program in 2013 with larger grants available of up to $5,000.
