Funding

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.


Graduate Fellowships

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.

Campus Events

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.


The Einaudi Center’s new Global Public Voices initiative promotes Cornell faculty’s public engagement on campus, in national debates, and around the world.

Do you need to travel internationally for your short-term research or field work? The Einaudi Center sponsors academic travel for individual Cornell graduate students and professional students. If you’re traveling between the United States and a host country for activities directly related to your dissertation or thesis research—or for other academic experiences in the international arena—Einaudi can help you get there. 

Develop your dissertation on global issues with a toolkit of resources.
