The research will be original and innovative and must address the active role of women in conflict prevention, resolution, or post-conflict recovery and reconstruction.
The following scholarships are available only to Georgetown students. Students must be nominated by the Conflict Resolution program or the Department of Government.

Candidates are selected from the pool of international students who have been admitted to the various schools of the University, on the recommendation of the University admissions committees for those schools. Students will be nominated during the admissions process; there is no separate application for the award.
