The Judith Reppy Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies is committed to helping support undergraduate and graduate students and faculty who are interested in its mission.
The Reppy Institute is able to offer fellowships to several graduate students each year. These fellowships are awarded to Cornell PhD graduate students from any field whose dissertation research is relevant to the concerns of the institute. The fellowships cover in-absentia tuition, a stipend, and health insurance. The competition for these academic year fellowships is announced at the beginning of the spring semester, with an application deadline in mid-March for fellowships beginning the next fall.
Harrop and Ruth Freeman Prize in Peace Studies
The Freeman Prize is awarded annually in the spring to a Cornell graduating senior. The Freemans established the prize to offer recognition and encouragement to Cornell undergraduate students actively engaged in promoting peace and to encourage continued work or education in the field of peace studies.
Harrop and Ruth Freeman Fellowship
Cornell freshman, sophomores, or juniors interested in a summer internship related to peace studies and conflict resolution, should apply for the Freeman Fellowship, which supports work at a not-for-profit organization.
Please note that because of the COVID-19 situation these fellowships will not be given for summer 2020.
International Research Travel Grants
Grants are available for Cornell graduate students seeking support for international travel for research and fieldwork. Graduate students are able to seek funding for multiple grants and fellowships through the application process.
Reppy Graduate Fellows Program
Fellows receive $250 for their research. The group of eight to nine fellows will have a separate budget to bring a speaker to campus each year and be in charge of the visit.
Each year the Reppy Institute is able to offer very limited funds to Cornell groups striving to bring to campus events or speakers that focus on peace studies issues and enhance institute program offerings and activities. These events must be free and open to the public. Student groups and other Cornell units interested in program support should apply in writing to the director of the Reppy Institute. Requests should include a description of the event, its relevance to peace and conflict studies, and a budget. Organizations receiving funding must also submit a report after the event.
